  • Quiet… don’t tell the airline. As long as their restriction only applies to ‘bass viola’ they might only apply to and bother ‘bass viola’ players. On a more serious tone they might mean bass viols, which would make sense. A bass viol, AKA bass viola da gamba can fit in an economy class seat. The last time a double bass would fit there was in the early seventies, or so I was told.
