Subject: RE: BS: Airlines Hate instruments
On a trip several years ago United Airlines demanded that I sign a form releasing them of liability for damage to my guitar. I had flown down to Seattle on Alaska Airlines and was connecting to Denver on United. The clerk at the United check in was not going to allow me on the plane until I signed the form. With very little time to argue, I had no choice but sign their damn form and leave. Fortunately, I always travel with a Calton case and there was no damage to the guitar, but from that point on I have never flown United.
