I dont know whether this is the right place to ask - hopefully someone will be able to provide some insight.
I am flying with emirates in about 2 weeks time. I'm flying to Nairobi, connecting in Dubai. I want to carry my acoustic guitar with me so I decided to give the guys at the Emirates London office a ring and to my surprise the guy on the phone told me I wouldn't be able to take my guitar onboard unless I bought another whole seat for the guitar (rather pricey to transport an acoustic). He says I would have to check it in as hold baggage and I'm kind of worried my guitar will get wrecked if I do that.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can go about carrying a guitar on flight and if I do have to check it in to hold baggage, how I can make sure it arrives with the neck still on!!
Thanks in advance,
