Not sure about Jetstar, Tiger, or Virgin but thought this might be of some interest to many of you. www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2010/12/30/3103538.htm ==== Musicians will now be allowed to carry their instruments on board Qantas flights, after the airline bowed to a social networking campaign. Instruments were previously consigned to the cargo hold but Qantas has now adopted a policy that allows them to be carried on board. A campaign on Facebook drew thousands of supporters who were outraged that instruments were at risk of being damaged in the hold on Qantas planes. A Qantas spokesman has confirmed that as a result of customer feedback, instruments not exceeding 81 centimetres in length and 30 centimetres in height will be allowed on board.
