Me and the wife are leaving in 2 days for almost 4 weeks on 25th December from Brisbane to Calgary. Super excited and just packing now. I have read one of the other threads recently about baggage on air Canada being 2 x 23kg but that you need to pay extra for ski bags. Has anyone flown this route recently? If I have to pay $100 extra per ski bag each way I will only take one (Put my skis & wife's board in that) and then use normal bags for the clothes, boots etc. I rather not pay at all as our overall weight will be way under across the 4 bags but what can you do.
