Man, that really sucks! Can you complain to the airline about it? Or is there a rule that if you choose to store something in the overhead bin, it's your problem?
Fortunately, my equipment has stayed safe up to now...I guard it with my life!
I should probably also get it insured at some point? Can someone tell me where would be a good place to do that (preferrably in Germany)?
Also, Will, how do you still manage to get jumpseat rides all the time? What's your secret?
I guess that's what happens in the end, you start thinking about the beginning.
