I'm not sure I'll get much response on this topic. It's a bit narrowly focused.
I'm heading off on a surfing trip to Indonesia next month. I'm taking Singapore Airlines to Singapore and then Silk Air to Padang, Indo. Other surfer freinds tell me Silk Air doesn't respect surfers and their surfboards. Boards are considered very low priority and are often not put on flights. I know of one friend whose boards didn't arrive until 6 days after he did.
Anyone else out there have problems with Silk Air? Any surfers out there?

I flew with SIA KUL-SIN-LHR last week. One of my bags got completely trashed at KUL's sparkling new airport. However, so far SIA have been very co-operative re: my loss/damage claim, although I haven't got the cash just yet! Anyway, what I am suggesting is that if your board gets snapped, your probably with the right carrier.

So tell me, why would a bag masher not like surfboards? Is it surfboards or just any unusually sized luggage/cargo? Hey I'm a 100K with your airline, but I doubt that would make a difference with Singapore/Silk.
