Carting his Steinway & Sons piano up the aisle of the economy class cabin, sources reported that famed singer-songwriter Billy Joel booked an extra seat on his Southwest flight for his baby grand. “It costs double, but it’s the only way I can safely take it on tour,” Joel said, carefully buckling the piano into the window seat. “This is my only carry-on. My baby grand is all I need.” At press time, Joel was struggling to pull his baby grand through the door of a Greyhound bus leaving the airport on the Hudson River line.
