    Yes. As long as the case fits the plane company's carry on size and weight specifications.

    Dumb question.......A trumpet could not possibly be harmed going through the airport security x-ray, correct? Or, would it be best to let the case be visually inspected? Just In Case, no pun intended. Just wondering, corresponding to frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz (3 1016 Hz to 3 1019 Hz) and energies in the range 120 eV to 120 keV might permanently taint the brass a little, or the joints?

    Regardless, leave the valve oil bottle and grease tube home, they'll not allow it on the flight.

    If they don't harm your computer and all of its fine parts, then your big hunk of brass and solder is going to be ok.

    yes laptop and shoes go in to the x-ray separately from all your other bags

    EDIT: because the metal detector you go through WILL mess up your hard drive (possibly even corrupt files)

    I travel very regularly with my pocket trumpet, and mouthpiece, as carry on baggage here in Australia. I make sure that the valve oil, grease, and all the cleaning kit is in my baggage in the hold (not in the cabin) - I have never had a problem, never even been asked to open the case. I have taken it internationally (to New Zealand) from Australia on one occasion with no comment.

    Last year I carried an Alexander rotary Flugal from London to Australia as hand luggage with stopovers in Dubai and Singapore, only on leaving Dubai was I queried by the x ray operator, making actions as if playing trumpet I was waved through, did not have to open it.

    Coming back from the UK I had a Pelican case (1510 I think) Inside I had my Eclipse Bb and Lidl Flugel horn. It was over weight but the size is the max for most airlines. I used the same case for between Brisbane and Sydney a few times with no probs.
