2 bages and a cello

Explorer C

Hello! I am moving and flying with as much baggage as I can schlep through an airport. I am also dragging my cello along for the ride. The only info I can find says you can check 2 bags per person. I am trying to find out if I will be able to check 2 suitcases and the cello since it is too big to take as a carry on. Thus resulting in 3 checked items. Does anyone know if this will be allowed? Thank you!!

As someone who is constantly around cellos and cello players the one major tip I'll give you DON'T CHECK A CELLO!

Double underline, super exclamation point... DON'T DO IT!


Seriously, go to the Internet Cello Society group on Facebook for more information.  You should be able to purchase a ticket for the cello, but results are a mixed bag.  Check out the Facebook group for more info.

Definitely what THEMIDDLESEAT said!!  Do NOT check it. 


Buy it a nice middle seat.  If you really want to protect it, put it at the window (depending on the case) and you take the middle.
