    Bass in hand luggage?

    am planning to fly back home this january and i'm thinking of taking my bass with me as a hand luggage. i've seen people carrying guitars every now and then, but i'm a little worried as it is a bass guitar and i'm flying on a smaller plane. my bass is around 49cm long and weighs about 6-7kgs.

    A little late I know but it's usually not a problem at least with an acoustic. No reason why it should be for you....some airlines have rules saying you need to inform them beforehand. I would recommend taking it in hand luggage and lining up for your seat early so you can hog luggage space which was meant for other people too. You might feel a little uncomfortable because of the glares of your copassengers but at least you get your guitar home safely!
    And surely youíll buy your pint cup !
    and surely Iíll buy mine !
    And we'll take a cup oí kindness yet,
    for auld lang syne.

    Just be careful - the airlines has a clause in their tickets that say that in case the hand luggage is large - you may have to buy additional seat.

    Other than that - just threaten them with dire consequences (in case the stuff breaks because of check-in) if they don't agree when you ask sweetly.
    You donít get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate.
