Has anyone gate-checked a Segway?

Jump to last reply

My husband is disabled but uses a Segway for transportation around his office and downtown Washington, DC. Rather than rent a scooter while on business travel, he'd like to take his Segway. He tried shipping it but ran into problems, so he'd like to take it to the airport, through TSA security, and check it at the gate. (His Segway came with Lithium-Ion batteries but he's purchased the NiMH ones for this use.) Does anyone have any experience with taking a Segway to the airport? Is gate-checking it a problem? He flies United most of the time and will check with them, but he'd like to have firsthand advice, if possible.
