    First, check the airlines policy For carrying ,usical instruments on board. But remember that no matter what their written policy is, staff at the boarding gate can make the final decision. If it's a full flight or there is some security issue at the time you are not aware of, then maybe they won't let you carry it on.

    Arrive to check-in early to request if you can carry your bass on board. This gives you enough time for plan B if they say No. Also, you'll have to make the request all over again with your second flight.

    Ask if there is enough room in the flight staff's wardrobe closet. That would probably be your best bet instead of storing it overhead.

    Be polite when asking. Don't be argumentative if they say no.

    What kind of case are you traveling with. Gig bag, hard case, flight case?
