Mexico’s surfing hotspots are now even more accessible after American Airlines announced they will no longer charge extra for oversize sports and music equipment.
The news means that flyers on AA will pay the standard baggage fee for their surfboards, guitars, and the majority of items under 50lbs.
Previously, travelers had to shell out $150 to check one oversize item, now they will only pay the standard $30 fee.
Due to special handling requirements, some oversize items such as antlers, hang gliders, scuba tanks, and kite/windsurfing equipment will still cost a $150 flat fee.
