A petition has been launched this morning to persuade the European Union to oblige airlines to accept smaller musical instruments on board free of charge.
The US Congress has already passed this requirement into law. It’s time for the EU to be as fair to musicians as the US is.
The endless anxiety faced by musicians while waiting to board is demoralising, dehumanising and probably in violation of the EU charter of fundamental rights.
Read and sign the petition here.
Reminder: These are the worst airlines for musicians to fly.
