Thread: Airline Travel Question

  1. Airline Travel Question

    Hello -

    I am looking for some advice. I will be traveling on an airline (Jet Blue) and would like to take one of my Euphoniums. For the trip I would use my Wessex Dolce. The case is basically cloth covered Styrofoam (the standard Wessex case). Is that case considered a "hard sided" case by the airlines? It appears they will cover damage if it is in a hard sided case. Also, can a Euphonium be gate checked? I would like to limit the amount of handling if possible. Thanks for any information /guidance you can offer.

  2. Yes, it is a hard case - and I have flown with those cases many times - and have never had a euphonium damaged. Ensure you use the bell plug that came with the horn. That stops it moving and keeps weight away from the bell rim

  3. Thank you. Do you know if it can be gate checked or is that likely not worth the trouble?
