Well, this is disappointing to hear!
While there's a list of things we can't bring on a plane, instruments definitely aren't one of them!
Having said that, a musician was kicked off a United Airlines flight the other day because of her violin!
Yup...Violinist Yennifer Correia was on a flight from Houston to St. Louis and was ejected because of her instrument.
“They told me that I had to pay $50 to check in the instrument. I told them, that's not what I'm looking for."
Wow. It does not sound like this was handled properly.
Check out a news broadcast on the situation:
