Singer on his airline internet hit


A Canadian country singer has had revenge on the airline he blames for breaking his prize guitar by posting a song about the incident on YouTube.

Dave Carroll was taking a flight out of Chicago O'Hare when he saw baggage handlers mistreating the instrument - but his complaints to United Airlines received no response.

He says he has now been offered $1,200 in flight vouchers as compensation - while United says they will be using his video for training purposes.
