Just wondering if American Airlines still makes you pay for boards if you fly 1st/Business class?
A positive aspect of AA FC / Biz is they don't open your board bag, unlike economy where they are sometimes kind of aggressive in their miserly, board-counting ways. In other words, you do get treated a bit better from the git-go when traveling FC / Biz.
You can cram 3 boards in there for the $300 RT hosing that you receive. And they'll still damage them at no charge.
I figured with 1st class they might cut you a break since they give you 3 checked bags for free. I wouldn't need to check anything, but my boards which equals about three suitcases in size. Would be nice if they took that into consideration, but I'm sure they don't. I try to never check bags anywhere I go non-surf-wise. Just a hassle.
the only way your board flies free is if it fits in a golf bag
or if you fly w/ an airline that isn't based in the USA. so many international airlines not only treat their customers better but don't charge for boards & other luggage as well. fly on one & have your mind blown.
