Ouch.

The good news is the bag wasn't irretrievably lost. But Carroll didn't get it back until Wednesday, a day after his speech, the Star reported. Carroll told the star he gives United credit for "trying to make some changes."

For as much as this guy seems to dislike United, he's still buying tickets isn't he?

He really showed them!

Maybe he is using some the free tickets that United gave him.

Dude,
You really aren't that smart are you? Lets see, the very company that provided him the material that launched him from obscurity, to being played on every ones computer isn't something to walk away from. But I will excuse you, being an airline pilot is challenging.

Man, I've gotta back Spaulding on this one. If you get famous and make your living by decrying a company, then it looks pretty bad if you pay to travel on them.

I dont think he really hates UAL, he just was pissed the way his situation was handled.

Dunno
The article states (or at least the one I read) that he had no other alternative to fly from Regina to Denver, hence his use of United.

In any event, I find it ironic that they happened to lose his bags. Nothing has changed. That was the journalist's point.

This guy had his 15 minutes. Go away.

Bags get lost. Bags eventually find owner. Life goes on.

Regargless of the airline.

And I'm Backing PBR. He said he would write three songs after U breaks his guitar. I am assuming he got a case of (song) writers block and merely flew United for some new material. I think He found his inspiration.

I have been back to the US twice since leaving, both times flying United. Both times my bags were lost. They get another chance in 2 weeks, so we shall see how it goes but I am not holding my breath.
