#Americanairlines has replied, and I give them two thumbs up! @americanair will re-imburse ALL damaged @cisurfboards and the @onamission bag. They are also returning the excess baggage fee. The airlines was aplologetic while  acknowledging their negligence, and agrees the boards were most likely run over. I'd like to commend AA for handling this situation appropriately. Most of all I'd like to thank all of YOU for your engagement. It's amazing to see the positive side of social media bring like-minded people together in stance of a fair result. Moving forward, I am positive the reply to this circumstance will hold as the example for all surfers in the future. Again thank you all. Let's get ready for more surf adventures :)

  • salty_seadogYew good on ya @americanair Shouldn't have happened in the first place and it shouldn't have been this difficult for Alex to get the situation reconciled. Nevertheless, it's refreshing to see an airline so the right thing.
