its my first time riding an airplane.. and i was wondering how many carry-on luggage are allowed?? i plan on taking my guitar in a hardcase and if i do take it in the plane, what happens if it doesn't fit in the overhead bin??

i was thinking about just placing it in the carriage but i don't really trust the people working in the airport... so i just want to carry it myself.

anyways, thanks in advance people.

It's put in a special compartment and you'll get it back by the end of the flight

No it's not, Flight attendants will not take your guitar for you. BUT It will almost always fit perfectly into an overhead bin. Mine did and I took 4 planes on my round trip to vancouver. As long as it's not oversized, they usually fit just about perfectly.

Well I think it depends on where you're boarding and where you're going. I took twice my guitar to and from Europe and I had no problems with it. I also had a backpack with me because everyone knows that you can't carry shit on your guitar case. I hadanormal gig bag, not a real case.

I had to put my pedals in my clothes luggage and when I opened my bag my entire contents were strewn about because they thought my pedals were bombs or something

Needless to say I put them on top on my way home!

You need to give us more info. What is the airline? Where are you going? How long is the flight? Are you checking baggage in as well?


You'd easily be able to find it by not being so stupid and just looking on the airlines website.

Normally, youäll be allowed one piece of hand luggage which has to be way smaller than a guitar. I doubt they'd let you put it in the overhead compartment. In europe, you'd have to either buy an extra seat on the flight, or have it checked in like other big bags.

Depends on the airline man, I've been on planes pretty much non-stop for the last 2 years.

At one point I was carrying 2 guitars and a backpack around with me .. I could check 'em all no problem .. they say as long as the total weight of checked shit isn't over 20kg it's fine.

But I've seen a couple airlines where you can only check 1 thing, that ****ed me over a little bit .. just look into it.

Get Travel insurance, first of all. If it breaks you can expect the airline to tell you to get ****ed.
Typically though (At least to my knowledge in Australia (Friend worked as a baggage handler for Virgin Blue for a couple of years)) luggage is sorted and stacked so that the heaviest things go on the bottom and lightest on the top. I'm assuming they wouldn't be stupid enough to put a guitar on the bottom
