Delta Airlines Chokes Cellist

No, Delta didn't literally choke the world-class soloist Lynn Harrell. He's been paying to fly his cello in a window seat next to him for years and Delta confiscated his and the cello's miles and kicked them both of out their mileage program, apparently after an earlier warning.

We've known about this for some time but Scott McCartney devotes a Wall Street Journal Middle Seat column to his plight. He also takes note of what another cellist recently experienced - one who had checked his instrument as luggage - when the TSA apparently inspected the bow.

When Flying, Are Cellos People Too?
