Lap harp and carry-on?

    I am taking a harpsicle to Stockholm, flying with SAS (Scandinavian Airlines); the dimensions for carry on are slightly lower than the harpsicle which is marketed as an item suitable for carry-on (overhead bins).

    Harpists who have traveled with this light and darling little harp–any experience? Words of wisdom?

    Thank you so much,

    I am interested in this as well. Anyone have experience with any type of lap harp as carry on?

    It seems to me like I heard Tina Tourin talk about flying with harp as a carry on once.

    Well I wasn’t flying with SAS and I don’t have a harpsicle but I do have a little harp by another maker that’s almost identical and flew with three separates airlines without problems (one trip return – Aer Lingus, Singapore Airlines and Tiger airlines). I actually didn’t check the carry on requirements but I would think you’d be ok as long as it’s not Ryanair…. I also padded the case out with some clothes to give a bit of padding and put it in the overhead bins.
