Qantas – Not giving musos a fair go with cabin baggage

November 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

excerpt from “The Drum” on ABC TV originally broadcast on Nov 22nd 2011.A link to this on iView can be found here (Australian residents only).

Musicians are tired of arriving for flights and being told their valuable musical instruments are not compliant with cabin baggage restrictions when they actually are. Repairs are expensive and should the instrument have be checked in, it is likely to be damaged rendering it unplayable on arrival.

This situation is unacceptable to those of us in the music industry.  Qantas should remember that a campaign to bring public attention to United airlines treatment of guitars went viral on youtube.

Song QANTAS – You’re not giving musos a fair go (please excuse my excrable singing).
