According to BMI, As of March 6, 2015, it's official and no longer at the discretion of the various airlines. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, musicians who board planes must be allowed to carry on their instruments provided they fit in the overhead bin. If this space isn't large enough, the musician is also permitted to purchase a second seat in which to stow their musical companion. One caveat: the airlines don't have to prioritize musical instruments ahead of any other carry-on luggage, so if the bins are full, you'll still have to check your instrument at the gate. To remedy this, the DoT suggests that musicians may want to pay the airline's fee for priority boarding to ensure that there will be room for their gear.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recommends:

  • You may bring musical instruments as carry-on or as checked baggage.  To help passengers who are traveling with instruments, we partnered with musical organizations around the country to understand the challenges of transporting musical instruments, and we recommend the following.
  • Check with your airline prior to your flight to ensure your instrument meets the size requirements for their aircraft.
  • Pack brass instruments in your checked baggage.
  • Bring string instruments, within carrier size limitations, as carry-on items.





    Carrying Instruments Through Screening Checkpoints


  • Please check with your airline before you arrive at the airport. Read additional information from the Department of Transportation.
  • Security officers must X-ray or physically screen your instrument before it can be transported on an aircraft.
  • If security officers cannot clear the instrument through the security checkpoint as a carry-on item, you should transport the instrument as checked baggage instead.





    Instruments as Checked Baggage


  • You may bring musical instruments as checked baggage as long as they fit within the size and weight limitations of the airline you are taking.





    Additional Questions



    If you have additional questions about screening policies and procedures, or need special assistance please call TSA Cares toll free at 1-855-787-2227. Travelers can also call and/or email the TSA Contact Center.

    What are your thoughts? Do you carry your instrument with you on out of town gigs?

    50 Cent Speaking On Appearing On Diddy's TV Channel, On Being On The Same Airplane With Ja Rule, On



    Now The Breakfast Club is on Revolt TV? Power move. Only right they get a guest like 50 Cent for the debut TV episode. But Revolt TV is Diddy's channel, and Rick Ross (a rival of 50′s) is in his camp... so, yeah, 50 had a chuckle with the Power 105 morning crew over that. 50 went on to make lively TV via interview video: speaking on air travel with Ja Rule, on Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo, on his new single "Smoke," on his departure from Interscope, on (drum roll) "Detox" and more.

    For those who want to join the mile high club or have just run out of exciting places to do it - a British charter airline, Mile High Flights, will fly you and your partner around in a small private aircraft that comes equipped with a double mattress, so that you can f**k in the sky.

    They've been around since 2008 and every things been going great, but recently the British air authority is grounding the company and no new flights are being allowed. The air authority claims it isn't safe and could be too distracting to the pilot. But if he's not joining in, and is separated in the cockpit (huh….cockpit) that sounds like a lame sauce excuse.

    FYI: It's more than $1200 to book a flight (more if you want to add extra people for a levitated orgy)
