-Fatt-dad sits in Panama with his mandolin having no problems with mandolin carry-on. It fits both in the overhead and under the seat, other than the fact that it removes from my leg room.
I have also taken my mandolin, the shaped hardshell cases work better, and packed them in my duffle bag surrounded by my clothes. Having checked the mando-caccoon with no problems. I just like to have it with me in the airport when there is a long delay.
¡papá gordo ain’t no madre flaca!
