I have an Air Canada flight to Bangkok and return. The first leg of the return flight uses a codeshare flight from Bangkok to Narita with nippon Air (ANA) who instituted new rules for baggage on April 1, 2011. Under the new rules the fee for transporting a set of golf clubs went from free to $300. Has anyone taken this flight and been charged this new fee? Are other airlines doing the same

Unfortunately the days of taking your golf clubs with you when we travel overseas is gone. (unless you have shit (loads of money)

 

I took my clubs in a light travel bag to Cypress via Singapore, Bangkok and London. Every time I got on a plane I was hit with extra costs. Never again, my golf is not that good and you can usually get pretty good hire clubs at most venues. Now I wear light weight golf shoes, carry a few packets of Tees and a few Golf balls.

 

Still enjoy my game and can always blame the new clubs if I hit a bad shot. :Flying:

There are some that only employ words for the purpose of disguising their thoughts.

Now that they charge excessive fees,those that use golf as a cover can now skip dragging the clubs along for show.

I have made the return flight with Nippon Air, and they did not charge extra for the golf clubs, despite what their website says

I love my sticks dearly, but I never get on a plane with 'em. Skis either. Who wants to drag the fuckers around or risk getting them lost or damaged ? wj

Wow $300 is more thank what I actually paid for my clubs!

Then again I am not a golfing enthusiast and only the occasional weekend hacker.

I think maybe it would be better to hire when there and just play with inferior clubs.

At least then you will not have to worry about your clubs being stolen etc in Pattaya also.

I've flown with China Airlines and United Airlines, neither charged additional fees for golf clubs (I have a hard travel case). I believe ANA uses United airlines for their flights from the US to Bangkok so I'm not sure why they would charge extra. $300 additional for a set of clubs is ridiculous!

 

edit: Just checked United's site in case they had any recent updates and the policies are the same. You are allowed (2) checked bags for international flights. Your golf clubs can count as (1) of the checked bags. That's how I travel and I've never had any issues. I have my (1) carry on backpack, (1) checked bag for clothes/items, (1) checked bag which is my golf clubs.

If Air Canada accepted the clubs with no charge then you won't have any drama with the code share ANA flight.. but... on your return leg you could be charged (most likely not).

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
