    I've flown with my Coyote, with a Snap-Plus lid (1/4" taller than a normal Snap), with no problem. It fits in the overhead on a Southwest flight just fine.

    The OP has a flugel with top-sprung valves, which would almost certainly require the Snarl lid -- which I'm not sure would work as a carry-on.

    I try to remember to put my valve oil in the plastic bag with my other liquids. Never had a problem. I've forgotten and left valve oil in my case a time or two, but the TSA agents have never had me open a case.

    my perfect bag would/should be for :

    - Bb trumpet (for the moment my old Strad)
    - Flugel (adams F1)
    - picc (courtois- vintage)

    - at least 3-4 mutes

    ----maybe some scores etc etc (stands !!!)


    this, now , is all not easy
    1º air companies just f..k you
    2º a bags like this must be verrrry expensive

    medidas - de equipaje de cabina- comunes para vuelos internacionales son
    aprox. 53x37x19
    max. 10 kg

    I checked my Wolfpak triple from the US to Germany to Chile and back with narry a dent. Otherwise, cabin-checking can be a pretty safe way to go. Have an Anvil case that holds a Bb and C--bomb-proof, but a pain to carry.

    It completely slipped my mind but the TSA wasn't even concerned about it... They scanned the bag at Dayton International and again on my return at Washington National and I got no grief or requests to open the bag.

    Man does the Coyote with the Snarl, clip on mute bang, and music pouch fit this bill!

    If it's a large plane, it should work. The snarl does have a flair at the back end. I have yet to travel with it on a plane, but it should work. I recommend calling Steve at Torpedo however for the final answer. I have spoken to him a couple of times. He is easily contacted and a very pleasant individual.
