I wish to take a computer monitor with me on vacation. I possess the original cardboard box and the Styrofoam. Unfortunately I do not have a suitcase with the same dimensions. I was hoping that I could simply bubble wrap the cardboard box as if I was planning on throwing it over a cliff and then checking it.
- able to do something this odd on a US domestic flight? I.e., will the airlines permit it?
- able to actually protect my monitor with reasonable assurance without a hard top suitcase surrounding the bubble wrap?
I noted this question where someone actually shipped a TV without any padding except for the Styrafoam successfully. Perhaps I'm not as brave and would like to bubble wrap it, but if the TSA needs to open it, surely they won't bubble wrap my package again.
