Hello- I'm new here but have been looking for help with this question in other realms for a while now. I am flying to my wedding destination and need some first-hand info or advice regarding flying with my dress! I know it can't be that uncommon...no info on TSA site or UA site and upon emailing UA the reply was less than helpful (they kept calling it my wedding ADDRESS) Sigh. I want to know what to expect at security for example...the dress is in a garment sleeve/bag but it's quite long and poofy especially at the end. Do I really shove it through on that conveyor belt? I'm not even sure it will fit!? I am flying direct non-stop luckily - on an Airbus 319 (UA). I am an elite member and therefore do have the potential for the complimentary first-class upgrade (they may have closet space available to hang my dress).Do you think even if I don't get the upgrade I'd be able to ask them to store the dress in the first class closet space? Is there even closet space on the Airbus 319 in 1st class cabin? Anyway- any first hand info or advice would be great. I'm really nervous about it and not sure what others have done or had luck with. I appreciate it!
