In addition to it, can I check my guitar on a plane?
Instruments can be checked or carried on the plane. ... It is not uncommon to check instruments as checked baggage and there are manufacturers that make road-worthy and tough travel cases that will prevent damage. So basically, it's best to not pack your guitar in a soft-sided case and check it as baggage instead.
On another note, how do I know what size guitar case to buy? With your guitar in a stand, or in it's case, measure the overall length (very top to very bottom) the length from the top of the headstock to the top of the body, the depth of the body, the lower-bout, the waist, and the upper-bout (see the diagram below).
At least, how much does it cost to check a guitar on a flight?
If you want to take your guitar into checked baggage, there are a few things to understand. For each guitar you take with you, you need to pay an 'oversized item' handling fee which is currently $25. This fee applies if your case is longer than one metre.
Is it better to keep guitar in case?
A wall hook will keep it off the floor while still displaying it to the room through a U-shaped grip that will hold it by the headstock, while a stand supports the guitar by its base. And, of course, you can always store your guitar daily in its case, which will keep it perfectly safe and sound.

The Short Answer: Keep your guitar tuned up to pitch, especially if you play it regularly. There's really no reason to detune a guitar that you play regularly and, in fact, it would be pretty inconvenient if you had to completely retune it every time you wanted to pick it up and play.
Guitars and other smaller musical instruments, such as violins, will be accepted as your free carry-on baggage item on Delta and Delta Connection® carriers flights¹. These items must easily fit in the overhead bin or other approved storage location in the cabin, based on available space at the time of boarding.
Per the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (thanks, Obama!), airlines have to let you bring your guitar on board as a carry on if it fits in a closet or in an overhead bin when you board. ... For other airlines, upgrading to “premium” seats or an exit row seat will get you a better boarding position.
As of March 2015, the Department of Transportation's law that carriers must allow passengers to stow their small musical instruments [guitars, violins, etc.] in an approved stowage area in the cabin took effect. So there are pros and cons of both the hard and soft case.
The most important thing to make sure of with a hard case or flight case is that your guitar fits in it properly. It should not be able to move around, at all, inside the case. If the guitar can move around it may be damaged if the case gets bumped, falls off something, gets stood on etc.
Guitar cases are expensive because of the material costs for quality options, and the shipping costs associated with bulky items which are sometimes imported overseas. As a rule of thumb, you should be spending at least 6% – 15% of the total guitar price on a case either hardshell or gig bag.
You can carry your guitar as a carry-on or as checked baggage. As a carry-on item, you need to have a high-density and well-reinforced bag for your guitar. A gig bag with backpack strap can make it easy for you to carry your guitar.
