    bringing beach chairs (backpack chairs) on SWA

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008GWFTGE?psc=1

    Paul and I have 2 of these that we bought a couple of years ago.

    We are planning an Aruba trip and will be staying at a non beach apartment for the 2 weeks.

    If we head to the beach daily (and we will) it would be quite costly to rent chairs day in and day out.

    Does anyone have experience or knowledge about bringing these kind of chairs?

    (on the website link please read the folded dimensions)

    Does SWA charge additional? Would they box them for us? I do not think they'd fit in the overhead as carry on

    well i just got an answer at SWA.
    i hit POST for my question and the nice lady at SWA called back and said...
    those kind of beach chairs fir in a carton/box that SWA provides.
    2 of those chairs will fit in 1 carton.
    each carton counts as 1 piece of checked luggage = FREE
    SWA allows 2 free checked bags per passenger

    we were thinking of bringing chairs ourselves but just wrapping rope around it so it doesn't open up and checking it. I mean people check golf bags, etc. we're still trying to find out if you can get those lounge chairs that open up, cheap ones with the plastic or whatever criss cross slits there

    Wow! 2 checked bags free! I'm impressed! and they give you the box? Some great customer service right there.
