Anyone flown Avainaca to Nica? How tight are they with the following rules from their site...

You can carry a maximum of one board measuring less than 2 meters.

If the aircraft is an Embraer 190, a board not exceeding 1.18 meters (5.9 feet) in length is acceptable.

If the aircraft you are flying is an ATR, one board per bag is allowed.

1.18m = 5.9ft? Hopefully they measure altitude better than they do board length.

Minus the board bag fee ($130 going, $172 returning) it was an A+ travel experience. One of the better airlines I've flown in what seems like the past 10 years. Flight was on time, no delays on the tarmac, friendly staff, food, drinks, nice seats, etc... They're still requiring maks, but they're pretty lax about it. Most importantly, boards made it safe and damage-free on both flights. Oh yeah, and we scored.

Thanks for the update! No boards but I too had a great experience with them when I flew to Bolivia.
