Flybe’s new policy seems to mean that violins and other such instruments will only be allowed in if they are the size and shape of a small suitcase.
This decision demonstrates a lack of understanding of our members and their instruments. If a musical instrument arrives damaged, a musician can be left unable to work.
The MU has written to Flybe with their concerns, and to ask why this decision has been made. Members will be updated in due course.
