We’ve all had bad customer service experiences, and in most cases when you bring it to the company’s attention that caused the bad experience, they do their best to try and retain you as a customer and provide some form of resolution. Well David Carroll, attempted in good faith to get resolution from United Airlines when his Taylor guitar was damaged by careless baggage handlers at Chicago’s O’Hare who were seen by passengers on the plane tossing the checked guitar case around. After months of conversations back and forth with various people at the airline and the airlines flat out refusal to correct the error on their part, David Carroll has decided to take matters into his own hands and creatively deal with the situation.
David ended his final conversation with United Airlines with a pledge to write and produce three songs and make videos for each song and release them out to the public so that the world would learn about what United had done. The first song and video entitled “United Breaks Guitars” is available for viewing on YouTube and I’ve embedded it here for your viewing pleasure. The second song has been written but the video has not yet been made and the third song will be coming according to the report on David Carroll’s website describing the story of his bad experience with United.
