As You Might Expect, It's Not Very Complimentary
David Carroll was
traveling to a gig on United Airlines, when the airline's baggage
handlers broke one of his instruments, a $3500 Taylor guitar. Not
surprisingly, as the Consumer Reports blog "The Consumerist"
reports (huh?), Carroll asked for compensation. After all, he
watched as the baggage personnel threw the instrument around on the
tarmac. Other passengers reported seeing the incident as well.
United has been, shall we say, reluctant to pay for the
damage, so Carroll has written a song, and produced a video, about
the incident. The lyrics include, in part:
You broke my Taylor guitar
Some big help you are
You broke it, you should fix it
You're liable just admit it
I should have flown with someone else or gone by car
'Cause United breaks guitars."
ANN E-I-C Note: Hmmm, do you think that 'United
loses Aero-TV camera gear for days on end' might make for a good
follow-up? We KNOW that tune...
