I flew with Lufthansa from Manila to Düsseldorf. My guitar survived, no
problem. The flight crew even accepted my instrument personally, and gave
it back to me when we landed. It wasn't handled by the luggage crew on the

Doing some preliminary planning for a possible bicycle vacay this coming
summer. It will involve a flight with a plane change. United Airlines is,
by a long shot, the least expensive way to get there and back.
Unfortunately, they want an extra $100 for the bike. Each way!
Bikeflights.com, which I have successfully used before to ship a bike,
would charge me about $90 round trip.

United Breaks Guitars

My two cents (worth about a half cent with the economy and inflation).
Taylor guitars have a status like I have never seen but all of us pickers
have a love affair with our axes regardless of the maker. I have been
learning build and repair for a decade. Taylor guitars are delicate with
very thin topwood, they do break easily. A single slab neck of mahogany is
weak especially with a truss rod cavity routed through it. The strings are
exerting 250 lbs of pressure from bridge to nut, the truss rod fighting it
all the way so thin wood is of no help. Mahogany is not that hard and even
maple is considered a soft wood. Opposing grain two slab wood is much
stronger. (Where one slab is re-sawn and the two slabs are switched and
then glued together.)
If you must travel with your favorite guitar then invest in an Anvil case
or something similar. Insure it or check with your homeowners or renters
insurance company to see what they cover.
I don't know all the details here and it does not matter. The guitar is
your baby, guard it with your life! The sick feeling of seeing your
instrument busted.... the horror... the horror...

United might have not actually broken the guitar. When you go onto a plane
you have to loosen the guitar strings or the change in pressure could snap
the neck of the guitar and break it.

Had thousands of dollars of equipment destroyed by airlines after years of
travelling as an international athlete, despite properly packaging and
labelling them. Best ever, was showing up in Miami for the ING Marathon and
discovering the gate agent allowed some stranger to walk away with my
wheelchair. A $5,000 custom day chair. I couldn't even take a piss without
it. Literally. It took the Miami-Dade police to guard the doors and find
someone leaving with it. Landed 6pm got to sleep 1am.
