And Now Musical Instruments

A United Airlines employee tried to wrestle a musician's violin away from her while she was boarding her flight.

From the article
Quote:
Federal law requires airlines to allow musicians to bring their instruments aboard as carry-on luggage, under certain conditions, but Correia said a United supervisor insisted she pay $50 to check in her violin.

I guess that ranks right up there with the TSA wanting to check my organ...

I have a good friend that is a professional musician. He has always carried on his trumpet. I just asked to see if there is a change in rules he has experienced...

Just to help out United airlines a bit more.

From 2015. I have read on the net that "we have no idea what the old man said and if it made the employee mad".
