This rule may be in effect, but I flew with two rifles on American in May, from San Francisco to Johannesburg. We had no problems at all on the way over, transferring from American in London over to British for the leg to SA. On the way home, it all went smoothly from Jo'burg to London, but American wouldn't accept our rifles from British Airways, so they agreed that British would allow us to fly to San Francisco at no extra cost. They worked it out among themselves.
