Re: Loosening strings on a flight? Or not?

Yep, I've heard it and I follow the advice, not only for temperature and pressure change, but also for any shocks it might receive - lower tension means the instrument is not so loaded if it gets banged around and so is possibly better able to withstand a shock.

Fact or fiction? I don't know, but ... being superstitious, I refuse to finish this sentence.
