Because airlines shouldn't be able to make passengers jump through hoops for basic services.

In two weeks, I will be flying home to the USA from my study abroad semester in London. Upon leaving the states, I chose not to bring my guitar because of fear I would be forced to check it and it would be irreparably damaged by the luggage carousel full of heavy suitcases. I was forced to buy guitar upon arrival so that I could continue playing. By sheer luck, I found a wonderful used fender for only 60 pounds. Playing has been so much easier since finding this guitar; it was made for me. Now I am attempting to bring it home, and I am terrified it will not come out on the other side in one piece. I will be forced to pay 65 pounds to check instead of carrying it on, when my guitar weighs several kilos less than the limit (meaning I'm SAVING THEM MONEY.) This is outrageous, and we musicians do not deserve to be treated this way. The airlines are unfairly taking advantage of us, finding excuses to charge us fees when we are costing them less then regular passengers and it is no burden on them to put our instruments in overhead baggage. They include statements like "you really should purchase insurance to protect from damage" and "you really should buy a hard case." It is not our responsibility to cover damages caused by their carelessness and should never be expected to be. There is also a reason why people don't use hard cases: they cant afford them. I am a poor student and can't afford to buy a hard case or to replace my guitar because of an airlines lack of compassion. And its not just about the money. Musical instruments are unique and sentimental, and it is soo soo easy to just let us take them on board. It is literally no skin off their backs. There's no reason for them to treat us so cruely or profit from with bogus made up fees when we are saving them money. Traveling musicians are protected in America, Let's give E.U. citizen's that same right! Let's join together to make traveling musicians legally protected by E.U. law!

Siempre termino pagando una fortuna o vendiendo mi amada guitarra por políticas de equipaje usureras e injustas. Sería genial que pudieran respetar el arte en vez de lugrar de modo poco transparente cuando alguien decide moverse de ciudad o ir a presentar su arte a algún sitio lejos de casa.

Las compañías aéreas no dan el trato manejo apropiado a los instrumentos musicales cuando están a su cargo , los tratan como cualquier otro equipaje pesado y además te hacen firmar un "descargo de responsabilidades" cuando el instrumento es muy pesado, en mi caso trabajando en cruceros, me veo enfrentado frecuentemente al temor de que dañen mi herramienta de trabajo

The airlines do not give proper treatment to the musical instruments when they are in charge, treat them like any other heavy baggage and also make you sign a "disclaimer" when the instrument is very heavy, in my case working on cruise ships , I am often confronted with the fear of damaging my work tool!!!

I am a luthier and I know intrinsicly how important it is, above all for classical guitarists, to transport their guitars in a well pressurized and temperature stabile environment. Concert guitars cost between 6000 and 30000 Euros and artists aren't paid enough to be able to afford to buy an extra seat on every trip they take! It is imperative for our culture and our artists - performing and building - to allow guitarists bring their instruments on board!

Casos como el de Myrna Herzog ponen de manifiesto el nulo respeto que tienen las aerolineas por los pasajeros. Pero lo que más llama la atención, no es el hecho que la indemnización no cubra ni el coste del maletín, sino la considerable fuerza que hay que realizar para romper la fibra de vidrio de que está hecho.
