Taking posters on an aeroplane
« on: April 08, 2022, 06:34:59 PM »
Has anyone experience of taking posters on a flight to get them home? I have 1 bus shelter tube and 1 large flat package about 40" x  20" x 3" that I need to get home. I was hoping to take them on board as cabin luggage but don't think they will allow it. I'm just not sure how they'll be treated by the baggage handlers and if this is a bad plan.

"I'm just not sure how they'll be treated by the baggage handlers and if this is a bad plan." - That's the thing, you can't really say how you will be treated. But usually they are OK, especially if you come for a touristic place (tourist buy lot of large stuff).  For cabin luggage, they may ask you if you are fine with that; and it should fine unless you have a transit and a plane change, make sure that final destination is indicated.  Buying a long luggage that can fit the tube with resolve your problem.

Thanks for the advice. It's long haul so we have a good luggage allowance. I have just purchased some packaging materials if they say I can't take it aboard so I can potentially repackage for the hold. I guess even if it's posted I still can't guarantee how it will be treated. I'll find out tomorrow!
