The world’s worst airlines for musicians
February 8, 2016 by norman lebrecht
Here are the airlines to avoid, according to our bulging complaints bag.
The Irish budget line make it their business to be horrid to everyone, but they reserve a special extra nastiness for musicians.
Only one piece of carry-on, to be stowed under seat. And no miles for low-fare fliers.
The Dutch are rude to divas and even ruder to dogs.
Our reader’s advice: ‘Cellists: Never. Fly. WestJet’.
Locked an orch in an airless corridor for half an hour. No apology.
7 Alaska Airlines
Alaska have the same tender concern for baggage as Sarah Palin does for truth.
8 Southwest Airlines
See Alaska, same problem.
Probably the worst of the lot. Repeat offenders who never apologise, let alone compensate.
10 Air Canada
Dear readers, you fly these companies at your own risk. Do let us know if we’ve forgotten anyone.
