British Airways Changes Name to British Open Airways

British Airways today announced that it will not allow surfboards and other large sporting goods equipment to be shipped in its baggage holds. Golf clubs, which are heavier and bulkier than surfboards, are still allowed, due to the heavier economic clout of their owners.

Allowed (Old Man Sporting Goods)

Golf Clubs
Bowling Balls
Bicycles (but probably not mountain bikes)

Banned (extreme non-executive sports)

Surfboards
Kayaks
Canoes
Windsurfing equipment
Vaulting poles
Javelins
Hang Gliders

They probably banned hang gliders because, with today's flight delays, they were afraid of the competition.
