I checked the baggage fees on surfboards with Jet Blue, as it's been a few years since I've flown to Puerto Rico with them, and the website is saying "one board per case". Last time I flew with them, I had 2-3 boards in my bag, and the lady didn't even look and charged for one board. Once I was at the gate, our party was called up to pay for the additional surfboards, as someone along the way HAD opened the bag. We payed, and everything was ok. But the way this is sounding, it's NOT ok to have more than one board in the bag at all! I can't afford to get to the airport and have to leave a surfboard behind (Because seriously, where do you put a longbaord in the airport? Naaa, they're gonna keep it.), and I don't want to carry down 4 surfboard bags. 

Has anyone flown down with them in the last year? And how did it go?

 

Surfboard(Domestic) $50 One surfboard per case; except items weighing more than one hundred pounds (100 lbs) will not be accepted as checked baggage. We recommend that surfboards travel in a hard-sided (rather than soft-sided) case to prevent damage. Additional information about flying with surfboards.
Surfboard (International) $50

International surfboard policy same as domestic; Not accepted to/from Bermuda, Haiti, Peru, Port of Spain, Santo Domingo and Santiago.

Maybe as far as pricing goes, but they allowed me to have more than one board in the bag before. Last time I was there was 2009 or 2010 though. There was never a rule about 1 board per bag.

I flew to California w/ them in August. I did some research and made calls beforehand and found out that you can have more than one board in a bag but they'll charge you $50 for the second board (I don't know about a potential third board). But if you pack the boards a little sneakily and are nice to the lady at the check in counter you shouldn't have to pay more than the $50 bag fee and $25 checked bag fee so $75 total each way. Have fun!

Same as it has always been.     You pack more than one in bag and they open it, you pay for  x # of boards.  

Sometimes you get lucky sometimes you pay.

Expect to pay full price, if you get away with only being charged for one board when you have 2 or 3 that's just more money for cold Medalla's last March I charge $50.00 for two boards coming and going from MCO to BQN to MCO.
