Flying With A Magma 150 Record Bag - Hand Luggage?

Recommended Posts

Anybody flown Ryan Air with a Magma 150 record bag and had a problem?
I've got two gigs lined up in Europe and not sure if it can be taken on as hand luggage. Really don't want to put in the hold if I can help it.

I've flown with hand luggage bigger than your Magma 5 times this year with them and had no issue so you should be OK. 

 

I have seen people get pulled up for having larger suitcases then get slapped a 40e charge to out it in the hold.

 

You don't want your tunes going in the hold at all, but especially not in a Magma bag.

Wow, Easyjet allowed you on the flight with your records? I was flying to Edinburgh a few years back and they refused me taking my discs on board because, and I quote 'Sir, you can break them in half and use them as stabbing implements'......I sh*t you not. I guess they've changed their policy with such things, but still, it's always best to check with the bucket airlines.

 

As far as Ryanair is concerned, weight can be an issue as well. I think the limit is 9 kg's. I stuffed my Zomo bag that holds around 150 paper sleeved 45's (ie no cardboard outer), and it weighed just under 9kg's.....so I was OK. Zomo bags have a similar construct to Magma, so you should be OK with weight; if you're concerned about it, buy a weighing hook on Amazon for a fiver. As said before, you REALLY don't want your tunes in the hold in a Magma bag, mate. Good luck!

or you can manipulate a can of fizzy pop they charge 3.50 e for into a slitter type tool to cut someones throat. 

 

equally as far fetched.
