Not that they haven't been, entirely, but it is a little more relaxed now, and official:

(although the Lacey Act would still apply, and that's scary)

The AFM applauds the passage of the FAA Bill that sets a consistent national policy allowing musical instruments on airplanes.

After five years and 23 short-term extensions, Congress has passed legislation reauthorizing the Federal Aviation Administration for the next four years. Included in the bill are provisions that create a uniform national policy regarding musical instruments on airplanes. Any instrument that can be safely stored in the overhead compartment or underneath the seat may be brought on board as carry-on luggage.

Additionally, the bill sets standard weight and size requirements for checked instruments, and permits musicians to purchase a seat for oversized instruments, such as cellos, that are too delicate to be checked. Existing law allowed each airline to set their own policy regarding musical instruments, and size requirements varied widely for both carry-on and checked baggage. The AFM has been lobbying Congress to enact such a policy for nearly a decade.
