by Scott Tichenor on Sep-25-2015 at 12:02pm
Air Canada has announced the following restructuring for musicians flying with an instrument and have updated their web site. We can only hope this is the start of a trend for other airlines to follow, particularly in light of Southwest Airlines recently breaking two double basses in one week. More...

Hint: click the big Mandolin Cafe logo at the top of any page to get
