This confirms what it states on the American Airlines website. Has anyone actually been charged extra because they had clothes in their snowboard bag flying American?

I just booked my flight to Jackson Hole with American...now I'm kind of regretting using them and not United.

Southwest, United, American all treated my dakine roller as a regular bag. When by myself, it's the only thing I check. With my kid, I have a huge duffel bag that we bring, as well.

One of the reasons I find myself going to Utah each season is that Jet Blue lets that first bag fly for free.

A pair of boards, two sets of bindings and the majority of my clothes and gear end up in my Dakine Tour bag.

One carry-on bag (love that Jet Blue flies the same planes so there's no question about the size for the carry on) and I am done. And no plane changes.

Jet Blue FTW.

Just talked to West Jet and Air Canada, their policy is pretty stupid... I can check in my snowboard bag but if I stuff it with clothing they'll automatically charge me extra?? why... I dunno....

So they'll charge me the same price whether I bring just my snowboard bag with clothing stuffed in it or two bags.... no sense lol

I don't know how they would know. They don't open it and by the time it goes through x-ray/tsa, it's already been checked. If you go on any airline's site, that is basically their policy. In practice, they don't check.

Hey kind of off topic, anyone have any suggestions for good bags to use to bring the gear in?

Airlines have merged and prices have changed since my original chart 3yrs ago, so I finally had a chance to update the table today. See my 1st post on the 1st page of this thread. Safe Travels!

This is what I use and it is awesome! It is huge, has rollers and a handle and the bottom drops for boots and shoes.
