Video: Here’s how airline smashed my cellomain
Nicholas Gold, a cellist in the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera orchestra, had his cello broken by Southwest Airlines. He wrote to the airline and was offered a fraction of the instrument’s value – ‘our maximum liability’.
Nick is not happy. So he made a little video in his garden, showing the amount of force the airline handlers would have needed to use in order to break his cello’s neck through its reinforced case.
Quite a lot.
