Check the website of the airline you're flying with, I'm sure you'll find some answers there.

Florian,

Is that because they fitted into the new size guide or because you informed the airline of what the equipment was and it's value and they allowed you to take it?

Hi Ben,

I just took them with me after asking at the check-in whether I'd have a problem. The lady at the counter said it's totally fine and the guys at security didn't bother me too.

Cheers,
Florian
