Thank you - on their site it says 35 lbs limit and the American Airlines limit is 50lbs and I'm guessing our bags will lean towards the 50lbs mark with all the scuba gear, etc. Hopefully it all works out
Melinda, you will be fine. We just got here via Tropic, and each had a bag weighing in at 47 lbs. in addition to a carry-on bag each (all four of those got checked), and a laptop bag, which my husband carried on. We didn't even know Tropic had that restriction. I am very glad we didn't as I would have lost sleep over it. They never even blinked at our bags, and they got on the same flight as us!
Have a great trip, and now you can sleep like a baby too.
