Re:the B in BA stands for Bastard! - 2010/07/20 08:55Travelled with BA from SA to UK with 2 boards. They initially did not want to even look at them until I produced the printout of the new policy and then no problems. I suppose its like any big organisation, the info doesn't always reach all of the people all of time, and sometimes language can be a problem. Just say the bag conforms to the regulation length and blag it, smile and cross your fingers. Loads of people seem to have such a downer with airlines - surely by carting your board around you realise how much of a pain in the arse it is too deal with and yet for a very small sum of money (in relative terms) we can transit the globe, with our boards. With petrol at £1.19 per litre its a miracle you can travel anywhere. If you drive in Europe the motorway costs more than a plane ticket!!
