How is the condition of the cargo compartment in an airplane like?


David asks:

Normally, how’s the temperature and the pressure in it?
Is it as same as the passenger compartment or no?
Do they change in different situations?
If I am going to check in a guitar, is it okay for the guitar?
Or is it bad? Why? Can it be avoided or reduced?
Thank you!

Musical instruments are considered a special cargo. They won’t place together with the other luggages in the normal luggage compartment. You should declare with the check-in counter so they will arrange a place for it. Some airlines even let musical intruments to be carried in the cabin.

There is a part in the cargo area where they can control temperature and pressure too. Like the place where they put live cargo like pets.
