(WTHR) A confrontation with a U.S. Airways flight crew struck a sour note with two Indianapolis musicians.
Nick Kendall and Zach DuPue, members of the group “Time For Three”, say they were shocked when they attempted to board a flight in Charlotte, North Carolina and were told their musical instruments wouldn’t be allowed on the plane.
Kendall says that after telling the crew they’d never been asked to check their violins on any previous flight, they were asked to leave the aircraft.
While waiting on the tarmac DuPue recorded a short performance, and began posting about their ordeal on Twitter.
U.S. Airways quickly responded; Kendall and DuPue were re-booked on a later flight and allowed to take their instruments on board with them.
