Diving equipment in the aircraft. Air bag is often ill-treated. Staff luggage throws it in a hurry, put the other heavy luggage on top of our luggage.
Equipment should be tightly packed, wrapped in towels and clothing. Dive masks put carry in closed boxes. All wrapped in a diving suit and thick-soft neoprene is extra protection. At the bottom of the bag or box put fins. Close bag shut and pinning the ID with the name and contact. Some airlines add on additional fees for the carriage of diving equipment. I never agreed to such charges if your luggage was in the weight limit. If I take the maximum weight limit of diving equipment, this means a reduction of personal belongings.
Good excuse to buy original and nice clothes in country of the destination. Equipment such as a computer, camera and regulator best to pack in carry-on luggage. Traveling to the plane diving equipment you should buy low weight.
Dear woman we warn against packaging BCD and high-heeled shoes in one bag :)
