Anyone recently fly boats with continental airline?
Heading to Costa Rica in two weeks and am trying to take a boat for a friend down. Bought my tickets thru United, but continental is the operating airlines. Their (contin) web page shows kayaks, under special/sports items are allowed, and if the dimensions are within the limits, 200$ each way.
The boat I'm flying is a Mamba, within the cm limits.
Years ago, continental didn't allow boats. Even though the web pages says yes, anyone tried recently?
