Winston Aldworth: A musical note

Add a comment

And you thought Dr David Dao had it bad.

Regular travellers to the US might be alarmed by news that Kenny G - the fluffy-bouffanted, jazz saxophone sadist who rose to fame in the 1980s for murdering music - played an impromptu set aboard a Delta Airlines flight.

But don't panic, people. Kenny G doesn't perform live on every domestic flight in the US.

Very few, in fact. Actually, if you see him at an airport, he's probably just there to help interrogate hardened terrorism suspects ("Tell us where the bomb is or Kenny's gonna play Forever In Love again!").

United Airlines' terrible handling of Dao's eviction from a flight three weeks ago is still riling our readers. We've got letters about United's poor handling of the case - and the grimness of the airline industry in general.

Next week, we might have one on Kenny G.
