Hello A netters!

Quick quesion, I am travelling from AUS-BWI on Southwest on Friday. I would like to carry on a tuxedo in the retail provided garment bag.....it's a rental, and was wondering if I would be able to store it in a closet on-board or if I would just have to store it in the overhead bin?

I'd prefer no to check it to avoid wrinkles and what not


Go Gators!!!

If I can remember my many times flying SWA, I don't think we have closets on board, they are simply dividers, and already full of the snacks, medical equipment, safety equipment and such.

I am afraid you'd have to as neatly as possible fold it and place it on top of a suitcase in the overhead compartment to ensure it is not smashed by a suitcase. Since you'd prefer not to check it.

Flight Attendants of WN if you can think and I'm wrong is there anything he can do that I am not thinking of?

Don't know what the regs are in the USA, but we often carry wedding parties on our aircraft. We don't have wardrobes, and with the captain's agreement, we often hang wedding dresses behind the jumpseats in the flight deck. Don't know if that's any use.

I'm pretty sure nothing besides equipment/personal effects of the pilots can be stored in the cockpit due to security issues.

I'm also pretty certain that WN doesn't have closets to store wardrobes. I know it has been discussed on here before but I don't feel like searching for the thread.

No closests onboard WN aircraft. You would have to do your best at folding it in the overhead or hoping it's a wide open flight so you have an entire overhead compartment to yourself.

WN has no closets (not even for the flight attendants) so you will have to utilize the overhead bin. Placing items in the flight deck is not allowed. As Alex suggested above, try placing it above a suitcase, which would not only conserve overhead bin space, but prevent it from being squashed when other items move around in the bin.
