>                 Key: AIRFLOW-179
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Airflow
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: hooks
>            Reporter: John Bodley
>            Assignee: John Bodley
> The DbApiHook.insert_rows(...) method tries to serialize all values to strings using
the ASCII codec,  this is problematic if the cell contains non-ASCII characters, i.e.
>     >>> from airflow.hooks import DbApiHook
>     >>> DbApiHook._serialize_cell('Nguyễn Tấn Dũng')
>     Traceback (most recent call last):
>       File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
>       File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/airflow/hooks/", line
196, in _serialize_cell
>         return "'" + str(cell).replace("'", "''") + "'"
>       File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/future/types/", line 102,
in __new__
>         return super(newstr, cls).__new__(cls, value)
>     UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe1 in position 4: ordinal not
in range(128)
> Rather than manually trying to serialize and escape values to an ASCII string one should
try to serialize the value to string using the character set of the corresponding target database
leveraging the connection to mutate the object to the SQL string literal.
> Additionally the escaping logic for single quotes (') within the _serialize_cell method
seems wrong, i.e. 
>     str(cell).replace("'", "''")
> would escape the string "you're" to be "'you''ve'" as opposed to "'you\'ve'".
> Note an exception should still be thrown if the target encoding is not compatible with
the source encoding.
