Anyone else think this is pretty crappy of them? Have any other UGers suffered any damaged belongings as the result of carelessness by airlines?

Sucks for him.

However, this could be the guy's big break. If he makes it big, it would be because of this, although he'd never admit it.

My family went on vacation in January, and when my uncle got his luggage after the return trip his suitcase was completly smashed, the handle was broken, it was missing a wheel and there were rips and tears all over it
EDIT: and on the same trip, they lost my uncle's friends luggage..it ended up in Atlanta and took them a week to get it back

yeah flying with westjet a few years back. put my ipod & my hunting knife(was gone hunting with family) in my suitcase right at the bottom and inside my rubber boots to it would be harder to get to and stuff.. I come off the flight. get home. and realize both my nano and my knife have been taken. So westjet gave me a free 500$ flying voucher

#21
See, this is why I take my guitar as a carry-on.

Those morons just throw everything.
#22

When I saw the picture at the top of the article, I was like "He just sat there while they smashed several of his guitars?"

Then I lol'd. That is a shame though.

Well my skateboard was snapped in half >.< I also lost a whole suitcase full of my clothes at the luggage collection place.
a little lost.....

I'd forget them giving me the runaround, i'd DRIVE to their bloody hq and claim right there. Hell, i'd probably barge right into the CEO's office.

But is it possible for us to take guitars on as hand luggage???

Blackrat has won this thread. That is an awsome post.

Bit of an old thread, but people in New Zealand always are late to the party like that.
I saw this on the news a few hours ago. It was linked with an update on the old story of the highschool students who took down the manufacturers of Ribena for lying for years after they found out in a science project that the Vitamin C content wasn't what it was being stated to be.

To the above, as stated by the video in the above post, it is possible to take a guitar as carry on IF it's in a case. They suggest you print off the regulations list and show it to any airline who tries to **** with you.

Also, a new bit of info. According to this site
http://www.seoptimise.com/blog/2009/07/united-airlines-lose-millions-youtube.html
the airline went and lost $180 million US after this video was posted.

I laughed rather heartily at their plight.
