  • You have to wonder what twisted minds come up with these policies, when a viola (or other instruments) is considered unacceptable for the cabin but in the good ole USA, people are allowed to board flights with “emotional support pigs” without any problem whatsoever (…until said emotional support pig starts defecating in the cabin and biting passengers and crew). My viola for one has yet to misbehave on a flight…

  • Easyjet! Not a question! Small instruments: hand luggage. Cellos: Book a seat online as “Mr. Seat Cello”. Nothing else needed: If hand luggage only: just go through security and walk to the departure gate. No need to show yourself at check in and listen to incompetent phone conversations, on the plane they know you know what you are doing and hand you the baby seat belt without patronising comments on how to fit your cello into the seat. Great stuff!
