Texas Country Artist Dale Watson Criticizes Airline In New Song
Texas Country recording artist Dale Watson was traveling out to Australia for a music festival and the air carrier he was traveling on, Tiger Airways, lost his CD's to sell after he was charged $500 for the excess baggage fee.
As with most airlines in the world they see passengers as an inconvenience and so after getting the run around with the alleged customer service with Tiger Airways he threatened to write a song and much to the chagrin of the regional Asian carrier, he wrote the song and Watson's fan called the carrier in droves.
Watson was reimbursed for the $500 baggage fee and the 1200 euros he spent to ship CD's to Australia after the fact. Here is the video of Watson performing the song on Fox and Friends.
