We have two flights on Sunday... The first is Marrakech to Madrid on that local Iberia airline, don't have name with me right now... Then Madrid to NYC via Iberia but it also seems to be American Airlines...
We bought two rugs by the roadside from Berbers today without receipts... Spent a few hundred dollars each.. The sellers rolled and folded them very nicely, securing them tightly with much tape... What is the story with putting objects like that through to baggage?
The good news is that, until we bought these rugs, we each (we are three people) had one carry-on suitcase each plus each has a backpack, so these rugs are our only "luggage" that needs to be checked through. Checking the American Airlines site for specialty items, there is nothing referring to this type of parcel, each one of which is roughly the size of a carry-on type of suitcase, or maybe somewhat bulkier, but I doubt thicker than a large suitcase (maybe 24" cube), I don't have them with me at the moment to check...
Any ideas about how to deal with this??????
