I have had nightmares of this happening to my bike while traveling to races. But well done Dave!! I love to see this kind of stuff. Hitting the man – United Airlines in this case – where it hurts; in the public eye. They never count on you doing anything about it, they were wrong in this case.
A quick synopsis: On March 31, 2008, Canadian singer-songwriter Dave Carroll was waiting on a United Airlines plane at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. Suddenly, a woman behind him with a window seat exclaimed, “My God, they’re throwing guitars out there!” Turns out, that was Dave’s guitar and United baggage handlers summarily destroyed his guitar. And, shockingly, United offered nothing.
“The strange thing about this is that if Dave would have just called us, we would have taken care of his damaged guitar (free) and none of this would have ever happened,” said a United rep.
This is 100%, unmitigated, total BS! NOW they say that because they got busted! To bad their offer of restitution came well after the fact and after all the negative publicity. But, that is how it seems to be with large corporations.Like what you just read? Subscribe!
