Earning My Ears
- Apr 10, 2016
I just measured my light saber. It's 43 inches long, but split up it's 12 inches and 34 inches.I have seen that the lightsaber is between 34-36 inches long, but I am not sure what it would be if I detached the hilt? I have contacted Westjet to ensure they will let it on the plane, but they want the dimensions. I want to ensure I am giving them accurate information. Worst thing would be that we come through with two lightsabers that they won't allow on the plane!
I posted about my flying experience in another thread last week. Here it is:
Side note, I was super stressed out about how I was going to fly home with my light saber. I planned to have my friend drive back to MCO if I wasn't allowed through with it (read some reddit entries where people had issues). I only had my backpack and a duffle bag (no where near large enough to fit the saber blade (detached)). I checked my duffle bag and planned on using my backpack and saber bag as my two carry ons. When I went through security (TSA precheck), I asked the agent if he wanted me to remove the lightsaber handle (heavy metal and plastic). He said "no, you should be fine." I walked through security with no questions asked. When I boarded my flight (Southwest), I held the light saber bag against the front of my seat with my calves (super light weight) and no one noticed it/asked me to move it to the bins.
