March 6th - A Day to Celebrate for Flying Musicians!

Image635610447556566546For decades, musicians have had to do battle with airlines and their less-than-understanding personnel.   That should all be a part of music history now.  

Beginning on March 6th, 2015, musicians who travel on commercial airlines with their instruments will no longer face the dreaded airline ramp agent who won't allow them to carry on their instrument.

According to a new (and final) ruling from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), musicians who board planes must be allowed to carry on their instruments provided they fit in the overhead bin. If this space isn’t large enough, the musician is also permitted to purchase a second seat in which to stow their musical companion.
