    Hello im going to a trip and im thinking of taking a babolat aeroline 9 bag with me, but I have to put it in the hold, cargo, whatever u call that luggage holder under the plane where u put all the big baggages lol. But yeah anyway, is there a possibility that the rackets inside the bag will brake? Should i just leave the rackets and the bag at home? How do u carry your rackets in plane trips with u? Thanks for the answer already and sorry if this is in a wrong kategory.

    More than a few threads on this - but for just about anywhere in the world you can carry on your racket bag and racquets and stick in the overhead - I travel multiple times per month and always with a 12 pack full.

    You can quickly check online depending on your country of origin and its prohibited items list - look at your countries govt pages and you will see in the aviation security section (they all have them now) a list of items you cannot carry on board.

    Dont do it!!!!!!! Baggage handlers dont care about other peoples stuff, trust me they will screw up your racquets. The babolat bag you intend to use does not have a stiff enough shell to prevent crushing. I would recommend taking them as carry on luggage. The temperature in the cabin will keep your racquets in tiptop shape. I doubt hold luggage gets the same treatment temperature wise as we do and could lead to cracks.
