UNITED AIRLINES SCREWED WITH THE WRONG BAND

&fmt=18

 

The Canadian band Sons of Maxwell is now a YouTube sensation. And they owe it all to the incompetence of United Airlines.

Last year, during a flight to Nebraska to play a gig, a member of the band had his $3,500 Taylor guitar broken by a United baggage handler. After nearly a year of complaining, the airline refused to pay for the guitar or do anything. Songwriter Dave Carroll responded by vowing to write three songs about United breaking his guitar and posting them on YouTube. The first video was just posted.

The response to the song was immediate. The video, entitled “United Broke My Guitar,” got 250,000 hits the first day and a half. In response, United freaked out and the band is now famous.

United Airlines is scum. That’s known by anyone who has ever flown. Not only are they probably  the most expensive airline, but every year they are at or near the top of the list of customer complaints. Throw in the fact that it was just announced that the airline now charges $1 billion a year in  added on “fees” and that’s reason enough to never use that airline. Unfortunately, most airlines are just as bad.

The website airlinecomplaints.org has an entire section devoted just to complaints just about United.
