    I’m off diving and bought some super flippers a few years ago.

    They’re too big for the Tumi, though (have changed my luggage since then).

    Can I check them separately…?

    Flippers are found on the side of pinball tables.

    Divers wear fins.

    Which airline are you flying?

    If BA, the following applies

    We will accept the following diving equipment provided it is packed in a recognised kit bag and does not exceed the maximum dimensions and weight restrictions:

    scuba regulator
    tank harness
    tank pressure gauge
    face mask
    fins
    buoyancy control device
    snorkel
    weight belt
    cylinder tank

    The fins will form part of your baggage allowance.

    Fly VAA UC and hide them behind the Flipper seat. (sorry)

    Ah! I hadn’t thought of describing it as a “Flipper Seat”!

    Please excuse my ignorance which airline is VAA UC? Air Vanuatu? Do they allow dolphins?

    A qualified guess on VAA UC would be Virgin Atlantic Airways Upper Class…..

    Air Vanuatu do not allow dolphins, as they exceed the checked bagage dimensions.

    Porpoises may be another matter.

    Thanks, I had previously seen VS as the code for Virgin Atlantic.

    Forget the fins, buy a Bladefish (www.bladefish.net). I have the 5000, and it is wonderful. Wish I had bought the 7000 now…

    at least you keep dry in one of these. What are the chances BA will carry this as sports equipment??
