Just in: Air Berlin caves in to Slipped Disc protestsmain
The German airline has agreed from today to take violins on board without extra charge.
A victory for Jakob Lehmann and Slipped Disc.
Our friend Fiona Stevens has been given the green light to take her instrument on board. Please feel free to use this as precedent against any AirBerlin employee who seeks to block a violin.
We will shortly publish a list of best and worst airlines for musicians. All submissions welcomed.
