Alright, I guess I have to join the union now, they finally did
something that helps working musicians (the non-broadway types). Is
there any factoid to print up about this, just in case I run into an
uninformed Delta worker?
thanks for the post on this.

MUSICIANS WIN A VICTORY AT DELTA AIRLINES
As a result of the leadership of the AFM, the work of AFM Director of
Government Relations Hal Ponder, Local 802 President Mary Landolfi, and
the on-going participation of Local 802 members, Delta airlines has
decided to officially accomodate musicians traveling with instruments.
Delta will now allow all small musical instruments and guitars on board
all flights. In addition to its carry-on policy, Delta also improved
its checked baggage policy. Checked items can now measure up to 120
linear inches and weigh up to 100 pounds.
The AFM and Local 802 have lifted their boycott of Delta and are
currently urging all other airlines to adopt Delta's policies.
Thank you to the members that responded to the Local 802 request for
written accounts of airline horror stories, to the many that conveyed
the challenge of flying with an instrument to the union, and to all the
musicians that contributed to this effort.
This was an important first step towards adressing the difficulties
musicians face traveling with instruments.
We will send out another email shortly that provides a more detailed
protocol for preparing to fly Delta under the new policy.
Please feel free to contact our Political Director, Julia Smith, with
any comments or questions or to get involved in this campaign.
She can be reached at 212-245-4802 X 176 or jsm...@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
