Anyone flown Delta lately and how strict are they on Board 115" measurements? thanks
I think if you're on a larger plane like a 737 there's probably a little leeway especially if you're ponying up for First Class.

If you're flying economy and bringing a gun for the Eddie, I'd plan on asking someone what they have under their house when you get there.

Coach to Maui with just a couple boards but might go North of the 115" by few inches but under weight I imagine . Seems most weigh and not measure unless huge.

Not to crawl up your ass but you're flying from California to Kahului on something pretty big, or do you connect from Honolulu or something on a crop duster? I avoid some of the Delta Connect flights where I think it'll be sketch to get the boards on.

Oh my sounds Dirty. First off the rules are rules per Delta and just asking if anyone has experience. Most have measurements along with weight and only been measured once flying.

Will be direct

West of the Atlantic. East of the ICW.
Probably all depends on who you encounter at check in. Couple of years ago we went to PR with another family and we flew the same airline but were on different flights. I had no problem but the other family got busted for a boardbag being too big and that they had packed clothes in with the boards as padding which is apparently a nono with some airlines. It ended up costing them an extra $250 on the way down. On the way home with the same airline and packed the same way they did not get dinged. If you encounter someone at the counter who wants to bust your stones you could end up with a problem.

Oh yes I believe that 100%. They are like a Judge and DMV rolled up into one and you only hope nobody has pissed them off before you. Kill'em with kindness is my approach.
