Bringing special items
If you are traveling with something specific, either in shape, fragility or other, the best idea is to ensure that you have communicated with the travel company in advance.
Arriving on the day of travel and getting stuck at luggage check in is something most people would call a disaster. Most airlines allow for instruments, fragile items and have different rules when it comes to different food items.
However what is general across all airlines is that they do not allow any type of weapon on board, and this even if it’s decorative. You need a special licence or permit for this, and if you are planning to bring something ensure that there is enough time between now and your travel day to arrange all the necessary documents needed.
