Well, not entirely, but they have a new policy of not allowing basses and guitars on board their airplanes as carry-on baggage. For years I have carried on my bass in a gig bag and put it in an overhead bin. Today, the people at the Delta counter refused to let me or our guitarist carry it on. They wouldn't even let me gate check it. They made me check it as luggage. However, to their credit, there were a couple ladies at the counter who did give me a large cardboard box with airbags inside it and even packed it for me, so I didn't feel all that horrible about checking it. They didn't have to do that, but they did. I thought that was honorable of them to do so. And the lady at the counter did tell me that they would insure my bass up to $2500. That was fine for me because my bass only costs $1050 new, and it wasn't irreplaceable. But you guys with really expensive basses may want to consider getting flight cases if you fly a lot. Me, I've got a cheapo Steinberger copy that will be the only bass I fly with from now on because this is happening too much at too many airports and airlines these days.
