    Hi Ilites:


    I have a Piano(88keys Casio) which I want to carry with me when I go to India this summer. How can I do that? Can I carry it as one check-in baggage? Did someone do that? Please reply if you have any information regarding this as it will be very helpful to me.

    Gooseberry,

    I carried a guitar and a yamaha esr 403 from muscat in hand baggage. i am not sure from the us. actually the cabin crew really helped us.

    last year my dh brought a sony bravia, as check in baggage. he had had it wrapped again at the airport apart from the packing it as it was delivered.

    Thank you so much for your reply. How many inches is your Sony Bravia TV?
    I have a Sony Bravia 40 inches TV with me.

    Gooseberry, I think you might be able to check it in as a bag - I have known freinds who have checked in say a carpet as a baggage instead of a suitcase.

    I am sure Airlines/websites are your best bets for an answer.

    Thanks Srama. Yeah, I need to check with the airlines. I tried calling them even yesterday but all their lines are busy always and my travel agent says the airlines office is busy due to the volcano in Europe. The agent says it should be OK but not very sure. I will try calling again today.

    Gooseberry,

    Upto 32 inch does not attract any duty. so we brought a 32 inch.
