I have a 40kg rack and i have serious problems with fly companies :cop::facepalm:

I recently shipped most of my home studio across the country for work, and I was not allowed to check my touring trunk at the airport. I ended up having to ship it fed-ex cargo (250lbs, overnight) Glad I didn't have to foot the bill for that one.

 

That said, I checked a 60+ lbs rackmount and it flew just fine, the only thing shaken were a few pedals which I could've velcro'd to the shelf better. On the way back I'm stuffing the empty spaces with shipping foam to reduce internal movement. Easy enough for the airport security to stuff back in there as well. Not really worried.

 

I believe they won't accept luggage over 100lbs, unless it's athletic equipment (so say the folks at Delta), so I'm guessing that your 40kg rack should be fine.
