No More Soft Bike Cases On Hawiian Airlines

Recommended Posts

If it's 6 legs, it's an insect.  8 legs would be an arachnid.

Isn't it two legs each way though?

It’s $150 to get to your destination. Doesn’t matter if there are multiple legs.

Its $150 aud to kona from australia if on the same ticket.  Unless its changed from 2016

 

When I stopped in Honolulu on the way home it was more expensive as we weren't flying straight through but it wasnt 150 per leg.

Also the baggage allowances are different if you're flying domestic with them. On the way home they tried to tell me my baggage was overweight. After 15 mins of rearranging my baggage they realised I was only flying via Honolulu, not stopping over so then I could put all my stuff back in!!

Be careful of this if you're doing a stopover.

 

And how is a cardboard box more protective than a soft bike box?

I've been told putting the shiv in a hard case requires me to pull it apart. Guess I will need an extra day on the ground at my destination to get it rebuilt.

It straps in nicely in my soft case.

I'll never KQ anyway :w00t1:

Not with that attitude you won't 😥

Will they still carry soft triathletes?

 Not relevant. They won't make it to Kona.

It's more stackable, and packable, though.

If Ironman had balls they would just say, bike fly free in October or we will just move the race. They would finally have the excuse they have been looking for to move it  

$300 x 2500 athletes plus hang on people with bike 

$750,000

mind you ironman is probably taking a cut or just did a deal with a hard bike box company and we will start receiving their spam via ironman soon.

I've been saying that for years. IM would be getting a cut of the dollars for the bike coming in to Kona. When I went in 1990, it was free to get the bike from Brisbane to Sydney to LA to Florida to Honolulu, but then got stung to get it to Kona & back.

If they are making you sign a damage waiver why the hell do they care how you pack your bike?

Because it's easier to pack and/or stack something in a box than something in a plastic bag...

Yeah but if it’s in a hard case and they can stack it properly they should handle it with care and not require you to sign way your rights to have your property treated as it should. 

Surely this should also happen for surfboards golf clubs etc too.

I suspect it has a bit to do with how many get damaged. I've been hearing for years that Hawaiian are not at all kind to bikes and despite never having been to Kona, it was the reason why I decided to get a hard case. I think every time I fly there is at least one person whos box has been destroyed, the bike damaged or the bike has been smashed out of the mounts in the bag. No doubt too many claims for Hawaiian
