Technically it should be easy with BA. They now count diving kit as sports equipment, so you should be able to take it for free, and their definition includes:

"Diving equipment kit comprises of facemask, pair of fins, pressure gauge, regulator, safety vest, snorkel, weights belt and cylinder which must be empty to ensure safe handling."

So according to the rules, you should be able to take it (although you might fall over slightly on the twinset) without any problem.

In practice, airline baggage rules often differ significantly from what they actually do (and what they tell you in advance they'll do), but this does seem fairly explicit so should be able to argue at the airport.


** note the same rules apply to GB Airways, who do BA's cheap flights.
