I’m glad to see this bill pass: http://afm.org/news/the-afm-applauds-passage-of-faa-bill
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.
