tennis racket bag as carry on?
lots of airlines state that you can bring a tennis racket on board as a carry on, but does anyone have recent experience taking a racket bag (the type that fits 6 or 9 rackets in it-although we'd only have 3 or 4) on as a carry on? i would avoid packing anything other than the rackets in it so that i could make it look as narrow as possible, but the dimensions will still clearly be larger than a typical carry on bag. trying to figure out if i need to buy some sort of thermal bag in case the airline makes me check it. this would be a us domestic flight, btw. tia.
