Anyone ever flown with a Harpsicle?

    The Harpsicle site says that the harp will fit in the overhead compartments of most airliners…has anyone here ever put that to the test?

    Audrey I hope you have the most wonderful time ever, a peaceful safe flight, and the best weather in which to see the many shades of Irish green.

    First reading your title line I was seized by the vision of someone strapping the Harpsicle to her bosom and flapping her arms wildly and running down a long path and jumping as high as possible when she’d gotten up enough speed.

    Although I have no idea whether one would fit into the overhead or not, it certainly gave me a good chuckle. Plan to offer us all lots and lots of posts when you return! Best thoughts–Sherry L.

    I’m very excited, even though it’s a year away.

    Hi Audrey.

    I brought my sharpsicle to Beginning in the Middle – it fit just fine in the overhead, but I had to be careful of everyone else’s belongings.

    Oh, that’s a good idea (the bubble wrap).

    I have the wrapper – just a cloth cover – and although it was a tight fit too, it really did help protect it.

    I also did just what your husband suggested

    I flew from Indianapolis to Cozumel at the end of May, and my ‘sicle fit into the overhead in three out of four planes.

    Yes, this is very helpful. I am trying to decide what to do–flying to stockholm on SAS out of NYC.
