laugh.gif have at them!!! What an anti commercial. Teriffic revenge biggrin.gif

Me and my friend went away for two weeks to perform at a pub in Greece, can't remember the airline. We saw how they loaded our gear onto the wagon that transports luggage from and to the plane. First time for any of us to travel with guitars, we just assumed they'd take extra care.
First my guitar in a hard case was tossed onto the wagon, a bit later his guitar, in a softer case, was tossed up in the air and onto the pile of luggage. Then a large suitcase right ontop of his case, you could see it crumble from the weight.
Then some more bags.blink.gif

By some miracle nothing was broken.

We may call them baggage handlers, but the employees call them "throwers" for a reason. This is not specific to any one airline; they're all going to throw luggage.

This is awesome....

The band involved with the UA incident is from my hometown of Halifax, NS smile.gif Sons of Maxwell, great band, and I'm so happy they are getting some exposer with this song. Apparently there are two more to follow as well. And even cooler, the singer is my uncles neighbour smile.gif

I work at an airport and know how little "thowers" aka baggage handlers care about your luggage so this is such a great revenge on the them. Now in all fairness they do have a tough job, and have to load planes pretty quick but they should be a little more careful with peoples stuff.

But go SONS OF MAXWELL!!!!!!
