I have one more question concerning traveling with a unicycle: I will fly back
home at the end of September with British Airways and will (of course ;-)) take
my unicycle with me. Does anybody know if they charge you (an extra fee or
something) for checking your uni in with the baggage,
if alltogether is less than the allowed weight,
if the other luggage weighs as much as you are allowed to bring for free and
the uni would be “extra-weight” ?
Thanks a lot already !!
I got my uni about 6 weeks ago and after practising a lot the last weeks I am
now able to ride some longer distances and it is just great!! I love it
But now the next step will be to learn freemounting (it is a little annoying if
you have to walk to the next street sign to get on again…;-))!!

I think a great deal of flexibility goes on at the baggage counter. But it’s
impossible to tell in advance if you’ll get a nice person, a person who likes
unicycles, a person who is swayed by a pretty face or friendly customer, or a
grumpy person in a bad mood.
So I would assume that if you already have the allowed number of pieces of
luggage, or the allowed weight, they can definitely charge you more.
Depending on what your luggage is, you might be able to check one of your
hand-carry bags and try walking on the plane with the unicycle. Other ideas are
to take off the pedals and frame, which makes the unicycle very small, and just
walk on with the wheel in hand. The rest of the unicycle (esp. with the seat
off) fits easily into luggage.
