A number of things crossed my mind while watching that first one...

1). Given the fact that I grew up a farm boy in the middle of corn country, I can't stand country music :thumbdown:
...but that particular tune was kinda catchy. Maybe it's 'cause I'm older & more open to new things.

2). At certain points in the video I kept thinking... "that dude looks like Luke Wilson - it's Mitch from Old School!!"

3). I've only flown once before with a guitar, I took a $300 (at most) Celebrity in a nice sturdy $100 molded travel case all the way to Jamaica & back - no issues.
But I sure don't think I'd trust the airlines with a Taylor in a factory-fit standard carrying case.
That's quite an investment to trust that it won't get crushed.

4). Man, I'll be United is mad at this guy. :pinch:

glad it wasnt us.... WE *(AA) actually carry them by hand on little pillows to and from the connecting flights..... :yes:.. :angel:
:fullofcrap:
I flew once with AA and they lost my luggage. 2 days later I get a phone call saying they found my luggage and will deliver it right to my house. I thought cool, that's nice of them. I get home and sure enough there is something on the front porch. It's a big heavy duty garbage bag. Inside is my soft luggage...ripped to shreds like a den of tigers was playing handball with it. Not a thing inside of it was good. Yeah I finally got reimbursed for most of it.

Couldn't agree more. My Taylor fits okay in the factory case, but it isn't real tight. I definitely wouldn't fly with it like that. I might stuff some microfiber towels in there to make a better fit then fly with it.

Either way, if they seriously were throwing them, someone should lose their job.
