Multiple guitar gigbags and flight cases

Hello people,

I'm looking for something like a triple guitar gig bag or a flight case something that is a little bit "skinny?"
anyway I need something to hold three guitars!!
le strat.
le tele.
le mustang.
i'm flying with them so I don't want to pay for more than the weight of 1 bag (23 kg) that is of course if it's a guitars chest or something.

if it's a gig bag i will be taking it with me on board and store it in the jacket closet.

I have seen the stagg double gig bag and a couple other bags from different companies, never one that holds three.
as for the guitar chest the ones I have seen costs too much!

pluz help me pepul of the interwebzz
here's a flower for my appreciation

Cheers!

EDIT: A double flight case is welcomed as well, since I can check two guitars and get the third on board.

There are a lot of places that make flight cases. Do a google search. Make sure you get a good one. It's gonna take a beating below. But an ATA case will make it hard for them to damage.

As for bags, you're not going to find a triple bag. They don't make them. It would be too heavy. Mono cases makes a nice double bag. Their new Vertigo bags are great for protection and slim considering what they do.

Have you flown a lot with guitars before? Not all air planes have closets. Sometimes you have to put it in the above storage. They would freak out if you had a triple bag. A double is going to be hard enough and they're going to try to make you gate check it.

I just got back from a tour. One flight had a closet the other didn't. The space is also limited above and not sure a double will always fit.

I didn't find anything for a double ATA case on the internet all i found is a guitar chest made by a company called thoman or something.
Can you provide any links please

I did fly with ONE guitar more than one time and emirates airlines had no problem putting my guitar in the closet on board. Never with something like a double gig bag. I wont let them check it even if my life depends on it.

Most probably I'm going to ask the airline before I book my ticket for their policies about guitars and if i can take anything with me.

The thing is i have 8 guitars and I'm going to be leaving my hometown for good in the near future and I wont be able to get back here anytime soon, I'm in a country where it's kind of hard dealing with such stuff. Ended up narrowing it down to the three guitars listed above.

Thanks a lot.

I have seen similar double flight cases from Anvil, Calzone, and Hybrid. They're not cheap, nor light. But they work as advertised.
