Margo vs. Cargo: Margo Price Has Unpleasant Experience Aboard American Airlines [Watch]

American Airlines may have recently been voted Cargo Airline of the Year for the third year in a row for “the best overall customer experience,” but you can bet singer/songwriter Margo Price will be disputing that claim.

Margo posted a video today (May 7) of American Airlines’ employees removing her guitar from the overhead bin after it had been secured. According to FAA guidelines, a guitar is permitted as carry-on baggage.
