Please Sign Petition: Carrying Instruments on Airplanes

Post by Madra Rua on Thu Aug 19, 2010 4:10 pm

Carrying Instruments on Airplanes



Musicians constantly face difficulty traveling with their instrument. Although the American Federation of Musicians (AFM) won a commitment from the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to allow instruments through security checkpoints, policies for carrying instruments on to airplanes still vary wildly from airline to airline.

The inconsistencies in airline policies make it extremely difficult for musicians to plan their travel and earn a living. Thus AFM fought for language to be included in the Senate version of the FAA Reauthorization Bill (S.1451) that will streamline the airlines’ carry-on policies regarding musical instruments. If this bill passes musicians will be able to carry most musical instruments on board and place them in the overhead compartment or in a seat (if a ticket is purchased).

This bill is currently being debated in Congress and it is critical that all musicians weigh-in to demand that the Senate version (S.1451) of this language be included in the final bill. Please sign our petition below to support streamlining airline carry-on policies, so that traveling with an instrument is safer and more reliable.

Please sign this petition to demand that the language included in S.1451 is included in the final version of the FAA Reauthorization Bill.

We should all just play whistle or harmonica, then there'd be no bother in the first place. Just slip in your pocket and go.

Well, that's ONE solution, Yer Man. But I think I'd miss the fiddles and boxes.

I would sign it too, but as I live in Canada, they might not want me to. Wink
Good luck, though. I hope it passes.
