As I was booking my trip to S.Africa with Bos en Dal Safaris, (Great time, Thanks), I chose to use British Airways to avoid any problems with my rifle.
That's where it went wrong.
The ammo must be separate, and lockable, from the rifle, because of this only the rifle counts as luggage
There is a handling charge (£50) for each piece, each way. That's £200 for one rifle.
A flight which should cost just over £700, works out nearer £1000!!!
I'm told South Africa Airlines don't charge for firearms.
What experiences have other people had with Airlines, Firearms, and Charges?
This post should be in a different thread, but don't know how to change it.
