    I recently returned from a trip to New York, and, low and behold, upon my arrival back at the airport, I find that the wheels to my bass trunk have been splintered through the case. Although no damage was done to the instrument, the case is damaged badly. It seems as though a bass trunk, like a helmet, is only good when fully intact. Do you agree? And, does anyone know how I can get the airline to either fix or buy me a new one? Hopefully somebody will have some experience with this... Thanks!

    If the trunk was ATA approved (like Anvil cases are), then you should be able to make a claim.

    Check with the trunk maker, then contact the airline.
