I'm just looking for USA flights for the Spring. Is the following a new policy from Virgin Atlantic? I know people have had problems flying boats with them in the past
Virgin are cool. Have just booked flights to Costa Rica using Virgin to Miami connecting with a Martinair flight to San Jose who will accept kayaks. Standard American Airlines are a waste of time. I had to search around but once I found a suitable connecting airline Virgin were able to book that also. Worth making sure it is logged into the booking.
Looks like Virgin are being a bit unfair to scuba divers:
If it's what they choose to take, they would only be able to check in a single facemask and nothing else! I would have thought one each of these would make more sense!Diving Equipment Kit
No more than 1 of the following, facemask, fins (pair), pressure gauge, regulator, safety vest, snorkel, weights belt and cylinder which must be empty to ensure safe handling.

Seems like a typo though.
ONE BLADE, ONE LOVE, [TOO] MANY PIES
4 of us flew with them to New York with no problems. We did however book them on as surf equipment but not a surfboard. It was a good job we did or we wouldn't have got them back. The lady at JFK was about to give us the over my dead body speech until she saw that they were booked on the computer, then they were really helpful.
Just re-read it, and it definitely states "No more than 1 of the following..." and NOT "No more than 1 EACH of the following...". What you think it means, what it should sensibly mean, and what it says are different! I have emailed asking for clarification on this, though.Performance Kayaks wrote:I think you might find that it's one each of the items.
