Scuba equipment as baggage

Jump to last reply

Just a heads up. Husband is flying on Delta next week to scuba dive in FL with friend. They have specific equipment they want, so decided to bring rather than rent. Delta charges $150 each way for scuba equipment up to 50 pounds - which is not much weight, even without tanks. A regular checked bag then is $35 each way - since it counts as the second bag. To fly his equipment is actually costing more than the ticket to fly him! If he had researched in advance, he could have flown first class with it's luggage allowance for less than to fly him plus equipment.

I am not sure why scuba equipment is so special - again, he is not taking tanks with him - since it has to meet the same weight and dimension requirements as normal luggage.
