    Hey All,

    I know there have been some threads on transporting your dress to your DW location. I was just curious if anyone has flown on USA 3000 Airlines which is an Apple Vacations Charter plane. If so, dod you have any problems transporting your dress? I called their customer service last night and they told me the dress had to meet the dimensions for a carry on bag in order to bring it on the plane. The lady said they dont have much room in the planes and definitely cant hang it up anywhere. Any advise? Thanks in advance!

      Hey there.. I know this is an old post but i caught this on a google search. I too am flying USA 3000 and i basically refuse to check my wedding dress... i want to take it as my carry on, or put it in my lap. How did this end up working out for you?

        ive flown usa 3000 before....and sounds like the person described it perfectly.
        its a charter flight, and smaller than normal, but they pack you in! so im not suprised that they dont have a place to hang a dress. Their carry on size might even be smaller than the usual carry on too so make sure you check the dimensions out!
        Airlines wont let you keep your dress on your lap....and if its long and full, you are probably better off packing it rather than bunching it up to fit into a carry on....
        Or, one thing ive learned from watching people beat the system - strollers, car seats, etc make it all the way to the plane and then the stewards tag it and send it directly to the cargo of the plane rather than it being checked at one end of the airport and hopefully making its way to the plane - try to keep it with you as long as possible! I've never tried this, but if you are that adamant about not checking it (i agree with you - i refuse to check mine) then it might be worth a shot....
