Louis Levitt of Rutgers University is the latest victim of airline negligence.
He writes: Thanks United for breaking my bass from 1887.
Happily, Louis was heading for a doublebass convention in Bloomington, Indiana. There were guys in his hotel who could fix things.
Here’s one more from Mike Gaisbacher,of Nashville: Air Canada caused significant water damage to my bass and I feel it needs to be known that they are unwilling to accept responsibility for mishandling a bass. They denied my claim, which I am currently fighting. It was in a David Gage removable neck case that I have flown with dozens of times with no issue, even in rain before. The whole inside of both the neck and body cases were soaked, it took three days for the foam in the case to dry out.
