Also posted in the not magic but section...

So heres my question... Im looking to get a new case for my juggling show. I wanted to know what size case is aloud for check on at an airport. Ive had varing answers to the subject, I assume this is because diffrent airlines have diffrent rules... Id like to just hear about any experiences people here have had. Also does anyone know a rule of thumb of how much a larger than standered case will be charged ie. is it by the inch or whatever.

Any Info would rule

Hi Anton,

Here is a web site that might be useful to you or another traveler.


It tells about airline baggage requirements and restrictions and suggests contacting the individual airlines about their own policies that might differ from those listed. You will find additional links to help.

Good luck. Mark.

Greetings and Salutations,

I acquired a catalog case from Staples a few moons back, similar to what Jeff McBride uses for his Commando Act. I've carried it stuffed full of magical toys -- minus the scissors and other obvious no-nos, and have not had a problem yet. It fits in the overhead bins of all but the short-hop jets.

Just my $.02 (USD) worth. YMMV.

I don't have as much experience as some but I have flown out of the country 25 times. (Africa, Russia. Philippines, Jamaica, Haiti, Mexico, England, Scottland....)

I have seen (paid) charges in each of these countries for excess weight and or bags. My experience has been that over sized carry on bags are taken and put in with the other luggage. On my trip to Africa my carry on was taken for the trip from Cincinnati to Atlanta (it had all of my props) and lost. It was not found until after I returned from the trip.

With the changes for carry on bags I would call the Airline and connections you will be flying for the current restrictions.

Good Luck
