Re: Flying with a guitar... or not
Well, back in the USA finally, and the laptop to be the nerve center of the
rack unit is gotten.
The trip was not without incident! I had to put the Strat through special
handling because the ramps on Virgin Atlantic couldn't handle the length.
When I got to Orlando, went to special handling to pick up Cthulhu, and the
poor fella had taken a header out of the cargo bay, 30 feet or more onto the
tarmac! Case shattered on the corner, dire fears as to the guitar's state.
He's okay! Went to a guitar repair specialist in Jacksonville, and there
was nothing wrong. Virgin Atlantic's buying me a new case. Grrr. Scary
for a day or so though.

I got a note back that said "that's what you think !!!"

Lol! But isn't it quite common to use "carrier agents" that doesn't
know they are used as a carrier? Someone hiding something inside an
innocent person's luggage to have it transported with minimal risk
taking (for the criminal).
