Here's a question for anyone who has traveled, by air, with their violin. The case that I have measures: (in inches) 6 deep by 10 1/2 wide and 31 long, will I be able to carry this case on the plane or will it need to be checked in? The airline web sites are of little help. What have you found? I plan on travelling (from Canada) to Austin next year. I like crossing my strings well in advance. Cheers for the help.

Thanks Guys, that's great news and hope to see as many like-minded people as possible in Austin. It will be the first vacation in 4 years. And now back to practicing. :)

Hi, Ray, I have taken my violin (same measurements as your case) on WestJet airlines 3 times and will be going again in a few days travelling in Canada. I have not had a problem so far but I definitely will not let them put it in the luggage compartment.
