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
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...
