Congress Allows Musical Instruments as Airplane Carry-ons

I’m glad to see this bill pass:

Even with my husband’s horn in a flight case that fits in the overhead compartment, we’ve had trouble with some airlines letting us take it on the plane. Of course we can both tell you horror stories of what has happened to our friends who have unfortunately checked their instruments. It’s always made me thankful that I don’t travel by plane with my bass clarinet very often, but hopefully it shouldn’t be a problem anymore once this goes into effect.
