    ^ when i travel, im always asked if im crrying an acoustic or an electric..they request you to check in the electric, but you mite want to check it out by the airline, call em up and double-chck.

    As for the amps..yea you;re going to have to check it all in. They wont let you carry it. Check it in as fragile..and extra care..or else its really going to be hard for you to get it back in one peice. (The red fragile stickers dont really help much! ;))

    As for the cstom payments..you prolly will have to pay in india..assuming thats where you are starting from, but you;ll have to ready for harrasment. I remember having to pay for my laptop-even though its considered normal baggage :annoyed: In bangkok-there prolly isnt custom payment for ur equipment but there might be tax, based on the price of your stuff!!

    Hope that was helpful, take care.
    And have lots of fun! :grin:

    Lighters aren't allowed anymore. I carried it once (domestic flight) and put it in my friends bag which he was taking inside the flight. They saw it and asked him to go check-in his bag.

    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    Wouldn't it be better to ask the airline rather than the folks on IGT?

    Everyone on the IGT is socially inept. Talking on the phone is a big no-no
  18. Definately, definatley do not put your guitar in with the cargo if you value it.

    Saw a wrecked gutiar on the cargo carosel. The fool didn't even use a flight case.

    Just been to Malaysia and back with Emirates and they were great.
    They told me I can take it as hand luggaage even though it was bigger than the overhead compartments.

    The flight crew put it in thier private cupboard which is the height of the plane.
    Infact they joked that they would not let me have it back unless i play it for them.
    I joked back by saying i don't do solos just to cover my inadequate playing.
    Phew that was a close one ha ha.
