TIME FOR THREE’s Violins DENIED ON USAir FLGHT!!


TIME FOR THREE’s Violins DENIED ON USAir FLGHT!!
“Time For Three” news: Zach and I (Nick) are on our way to meet up with our bassist, Ranaan Meyer, to play at the Artosphere Arts and Nature Festival in Fayetteville, Arkansas. We were trying to make a connection in Charlotte, and the captain and crew told us that our violins were not allowed on the flight! They literally left us alone on the tarmac without any direction. Amazing! Are violins dangerous? It’s hard enough to make it as a classical musician. Cut us some slack, PLEASE!!!

  1. Continental broke my high school’s double bass in half when we flew to NY
    16 years ago (jesus, has it been that long?) so I have no doubt a violin
    would be absolutely mauled in cargo.

  2. Unbelievable- that’s terrible. But I have seen similar things happen to
    musicians on those small regional jets. It TOTALLY depends on the
    crew…unfortunately, it’s hard to avoid those planes these days since the
    airlines are using them more and more, even between large cities.

  3. I’m guessing it wasn’t the violins – it was that you exceeded the maximum
    of one carry on plus a small personal item. 

  4. They must have a grudge on musicians or something, my bow got taken from me
    because they said that ivory was illegal. *Facepalm* it was synthetic
    ivory.

  5. lets hope my oboe won’t get denied. but by the way, didn’t a musicians
    union convince congress about musical instruments and passed a law to FAA?
    … Just saying
