British Airway clarifies small instrument policy

10:12, 21st December 2017

British Airways has clarified its policy on small musical instruments after receiving complaints from a number of musicians.

According to the airline’s website, smaller musical instruments can be taken in the cabin as part of, but not in addition to, passengers’ luggage.

The airline’s statement reads: ‘Our airport staff will make every effort to find space in the cabin for musical instruments that are within the dimensions of 80 x 30 x 25cm (31 x 11 x 10in),¬†as we know extreme temperatures can damage these instruments in the hold.’

The clarification received a positive response on social media.
