British Airways changes the process for carrying a cello on board from 1 January 2016
Customers wishing to carry a cello on board a British Airways aircraft will need to book an extra seat for their instrument.
The customer will check in for the flight with their cello and then it will be taken to the aircraft door by airport staff. The loader will then pass the cello to the client during pre-boarding so the client can board the aircraft themselves with their instrument.
Once on board, the customer will secure their cello in the extra seat with the help of an extension seatbelt provided by the cabin crew.
