Air woes: BA almost lose the Boston Symphonymain
On their fully-booked homebound flight from a wildly successful European tour, three members of the orchestra were told they could not board their instruments. The reason? New BA regulations.
A heated discussion ensued.
The outcome: everyone boarded, and BA apologised.
The moral: it’s tougher for an airline to fight a whole orchestra than it is to pick on a lone travelling musician.
Always remember: airlines are not our friends.
