Hey, I'm planning next summer on going back to a festival in Switzerland I was at this summer, but I'd like to bring my bass this time instead of borrowing one. I'm planning on getting funding from my university to pay for travel (the festival is a fellowship apart from travel), so I was wondering if anyone has any advice about flying between NY and Geneva with a bass. Should I rent/borrow a flight-case or buy a seat? Can I buy a seat for my bass? Also, I will need to bring my bass on the train from the Geneva Airport to the festival (a ride of about 4 hrs), so having a flight-case on a train might be very tough. The airlines that fly Geneva-NY are: United, Swiss International, British, American, Continental, Brussels, Lufthansa, Air France, and Iberia.
