[quote]Anyone who's lost a bag or had their stuff damaged by an airline knows the frustration -- you spend hours on the phone, often with a call center in India, and feel like you're getting nowhere.
Such was the plight of Dave Carroll, a Canadian musician who says United Airlines baggage handlers smashed his favorite Taylor guitar as he changed planes at O'Hare. As Carroll and the rest of the band sat on the plane, another passenger saw the baggage handlers tossing guitars to one another and shouted, "My God, they're throwing guitars out there!"
Carroll said the base of his guitar was smashed. He tried to reason with United for months to get them to pay the $1,200 repair cost -- but he got the run-around, and ultimately they wouldn't. So, Carroll did what he does best. He wrote a song about it, "United Breaks Guitars."
The YouTube video Carroll made to go along with the song may be the biggest hit of his career, and it's really worth a watch. He actually promised to make two more songs and videos about his debacle with United, and if they're half as fun as the first one, we can't wait.[/quote]
United Airlines lost my messenger bag that had my cellphone and some cash in it. They claimed that I never even had a messenger bag when I was on the phone with them. Fuck UA.
I posted this in the videos section a few days ago :)
That video is great.
[B]EDIT:[/B] I'm going to start trusting airlines as much as I trust auto mechanics.
Whoa, I'm about to go onto an airplane with my guitar.
With SouthWest though, am I alright?
It's actually a good song, catchy.
And fuck the airlines, passengers are just cattle to them.

All 05'ers have caught a disease that changes their text, it's slowly spreading among them.

Apparently the text isn't for all '05ers :(
Hahaha, that video was great.

You just haven't caught the disease yet.
Hahahaha, that's great.
Frontier's always been my favorite
that was an awesome video, to be honest. why his bandmates were dressed as Mexicans, I'll have no clue, but it was awesome nonetheless.
Jesus fuck that video is awesome.
Gah, United is my least favorite of airlines. I like alaska.
Southwest has some funny fucking flight people.

I second this. I loved it the last time I flew Southwest.

Man, though, the last flight, the one in, totally boring people. 2 flights of good, funny as fuck people, then some boring ones coming home.
Air Canada. They are nice. When they cause a disruption in your flight, they attempt to fix it. Really! They got us to Vancouver super quick after that snowstorm!
So this was the song my mom was talking about when she came home and was like HEY HOW YOU USE YOUTUBE DOES IT WORK ON YOUR COMPUTER YOU HAVE TO WATCH UNITED BREAKS GUITARS
i was like whut
Haha, very witty. Reminds me of a Bluegrass band in Austin, called, "The Austin Lounge Lizards."
Very punkrock, actually, in the way﻿ it's criticizing stuff.
