It looks like it. Wonder what the fine print will be if any?

Delta removes $150 fee for sporting equipment as checked baggage

Atlanta Airport Blog 20 hours ago
By Kelly Yamanouchi, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Delta Air Lines says it is eliminating its $150 fee to check golf clubs, surfboards, bicycles, scuba gear and other large sporting equipment, starting today.
Atlanta-based Delta’s decision follows a move in May by competitor American Airlines to eliminate oversize bag fees for a variety of sports and music equipment. And United Airlines last year eliminated its $150 or $200 service fees for checking a surfboard, wakeboard or paddleboard to and from California.Southwest Airlines, the second-largest carrier at Hartsfield-Jackson, already allows passengers to check golf bags, scuba equipment and small bicycle boxes as baggage without charging a special fee for sports equipment. Dallas-based Southwest allows passengers to check two bags for free. It charges a $75 fee each way for larger bicycle boxes, surfboards and some other equipment. Delta said its new policy eliminating its $150 fee for sporting equipment is effective for travel worldwide.But passengers traveling with sporting equipment will still need to pay any regular checked baggage fees. On domestic flights, Delta charges $30 for a first checked bag and $40 for a second checked bag. There are different rates for international flights --there may be higher fees for checked bags on some international routes, while on other international routes passengers can check one or two bags for free.There are still overweight bag fees on Delta for items that weigh more than 50 lbs, and in many cases the airline says it won’t accept items with length+width+height totaling more than 115 inches.Also, policies on Delta Connection regional flights may be different -- those flights are operated by regional partner airlines on smaller planes.

Flew Alaska a few weeks ago and boards were treated as regular luggage.

Get a grip.

Just hit their site and it is true and its two boards to a bag not over 50 pounds. Only bummer is there are no non-stop flights between me and Southern California. Their prices are a little on the high side too. Never flown Delta. Are their planes more comfortable than American? If so it still might be worth it.

Delta is one of the better domestic carriers. Certainly better than American and United. They don’t have much in the way of international flights within the Americas, unless you live near a hub.

I have avoided flying Delta specifically due to boardbag fees.

BTW, major dowsnide to this is boardbag fees can be a deterrent to surf travel.

So, expect more crowds.

For me Delta issues were the embargoes. They'd block anything oversize to San Salvador, Managua, basically all of Mexico that works out...all summer long, Memorial to Labor Day. Right when it's time to GTFO and go to these places.

When I saw Guad wasn't embargoe'd this summer I swooped. Beats the f--k out of driving to Orlando or Miami - the haul from South Florida is a long one, and having to re-check your baggage in the Orlando people mover...I sat there for 20-30 minutes waiting for my shit flying back from LA.

Delta Comfort+ is better and their first class is fine. Avianca's is as well. AeroMexico I've had the best luck with first class getting the boardbag fees waived. Much spottier on other airlines, although imho with what (some) surf trips cost, getting a priority tag on your board + all the other shit (departure lounge, comfy seats, service, early boarding = not worrying about being forced to check your one bookbag because some peasant had a rollerbag, bookbag, and plastic bag with food for their cheap ass) it sort of works out, especially the foreign carriers where you can lowball bid on empty first class seats and score.

Casa kind of has a point. I fly Delta to California, and it doesn't waste any work time - I can fly out after work and get back in the morning off the redeye.

Checked JAX-LAX and JAX-SFO for longs weekend in early December. Post-work departures from the East Coast and and pre-work arrivals on the redeye.

I need about tree fitty.

Surfboard Checked Bag Requirements and Fees

Standard baggage allowance and fees based on cabin and travel region apply
Surfboards weighing over 50 lbs. will be charged the applicable excess weight fee - what the charge is shrug
If the outside linear dimensions (length + width + height) exceed 115 linear inches (292 cm), the item will not be accepted - that's what about a 7' double, maybe triple, board bag
Items in excess of baggage allowance will be subject to additional or overweight baggage fees
Surfboards are allowed up to two (2) boards per bag
Surfboard Terms & Conditions

Between Honolulu and Maui, there is a $20 USD/CAD fee
Delta Connection carrier surfboard acceptance and charges may vary. Surfboards over 72 inches in length are not allowed on Delta Connection carrier flights. Contact Reservations for more information

Just got hit up in Jacksonville. $150. I got a receipt and they even gave me a special red card with a totally non-generic 1 800 number or some shit on it. The agent's dad surfs apparently, she said she told him to go to Nicaragua, and that she specifically looked up/entered surfboard in the computer. Other dude directing traffic at check-in had no idea about any policy change either.

Hopefully will be on time coming to/from Atlanta and will get to speak to someone in person there to recoup my scrilla.

Free for bike boxes as well now! As noted above, 70lbs and some rather large linear dimension is the limit. Above those and you have to use their "cargo" division.

Cause it ain't no thing.

And if your boards break they're not paying for them.

The dumbest thing is to have to pay for boards and have no real recourse if they're mishandled.
That said, people who pack their boardbag with stuff other than surfboards are idiots and asking for problems.

Did you ask to speak to a supervisor and present this link?

Please report back. I would have been livid.

I didn't, just stashed the receipt. I get superstitious about bags and I think I will recoup with receipt. I did try in Atlanta, and they didn't know anything either. I am going to go back with this link now.

No luck, those desks appear to be for connection snafus. They told me I could get on the service phone and call reservations, and my flight appears to be ready to board in minutes.

Email customer service/complaints from your destination.

Send an image of your receipt and link that I posted.

Explain you are very concerned not only that you were charged the $150 but fear you will again be charged $150 on the return, thus totaling $300.

No response within a 2 business days? You'll need to get their attention. Send info to BeachGrit, Stab, and TheInertia.

Isn't spirit $100. per bag, with multiple boards in it--just can't be too heavy?

I know jetblue just jacked their surfboard charges from $50 per board to $100 per. Ridiculous.

Didn't feel like cracking the computer for anything other than work. Followed up again in Atlanta, got an 800 number. Sat on hold for 30 fooking minutes to give my ticket number and now I'm on fooking hold again. Pretty sure I might have to hang up to board before I finally can ask WTF is going on.

I think I booked travel before the date, but my guess is people that didn't are still getting hit up, because precisely 0 people knew WTF I was talking about, anywhere. I referred the link Casa provided to the person at the desk in Atlanta, and that was the first she heard of it.

IMHO not a smooth rollout, and when I needed to book this ticket and wasted over an hour trying to get their website to let me do it (no lie, could not f-----g book through website got animated gif for 10 minutes and then timeout like 3-4 separate times, had to make a phone call) I got a callback and was done within 15 minutes.

Literally just heard back from the first person that they are "getting their ducks in a row" and can I go back on hold some more. I told them yeah but only ten more minutes.

i flew home from Maui after the change on Delta and the counter person hammered me. I had the page up on my phone to show her and she showed me a paper print out with older dates.

She was nice about it but I ended up paying almost $400 to get my stuff home.

Came home and contacted Delta with my issue. After some amazing CS they refunded ALL my money.

So I bought on the 12th, guess 17th was applicable. Going to try the complaints link and plead my case. 40+ minutes to get the complaints reference.

My advice for anyone who did book after July 17th is to have that website Casa referenced handy, because nobody I asked had even heard about this, and I could be wrong, but I doubt, given that, they will only hit you for $30.

Also there are some disclaimers about carriers and whatnot, so if it's operated by aero mexico littoral or some such, don't count on coolness.

How much money is at stake here?

There is a certain amount that I won't worry about.

As I got older that amount has gotten larger.

Yeah, I would try to get that back but I would let it ruin my trip.

That is not enough to ruin my calm state. It's not worth it.

No. I never really travel in the US, except to SFO. And then I fly Alaska.

I hate US airlines.

I wouldn't say it affected the trip; wasn't even enough for me to write them on vacay. I just disliked being on hold for so long to relay so little info, and also shocked nobody I dealt with in person had the foggiest about this policy change. So if I bought my ticket six days later, it would have been a legit shaft job.

They all need to get on Primera Plus and Parhikuni's level.

I was glad my boards made it to Mex on time and hope to find no dings when I look after work.

Do they make a reel with a motor?

Years ago we caught a yellowfin about that size that was foul hooked at the base of its pec fin. Four of us took turns on that fish before we got it to the boat. What an ass kicking. We thought we had a 900 pound bluefin.

Wow. I went out with a buddy once and he shot a 60# class fish (it stole his speargun, posted up somewhere on the wreck just chilling and he had to give crew #3 detailed location, then #3 had to go down and shoot it, again, to get the fish and gear); that thing is just enormous.

Like, it is out of a Tom Clancy book, has a silent caterpillar drive, and Sean Connery is the captain and is taking it from the Soviet Union to the US because it's a dangerous superweapon, enormous.

Put my kid on an American Airlines flight to Kauai on Sunday. American now counts board bags as a regular checked piece of luggage. $30 if you don't have a free baggage allowance.

Perhaps the airlines are realizing that trating surfers shitty is costing them business. Surfers do a lot of travelling and we'd all travel more if the board bag fees don't add up to the cost of an extra ticket.
