I am considering bringing my U-Bass on a long trip to Europe. I'll be flying Air France transatlantic, and between Paris and Berlin. I also have one EasyJet flight inside Europe. I've had no problem in North America, but I want to check if anyone's brought a u-bass or similar-sized instrument on board with these carriers and had problems. I will have a backpack, and a small medical device as well (not supposed to count against carryon numbers) Relatedly, if anyone's ever had your u-bass thrown into luggage, how did it survive?
