    Is it true that if you fly economy on a Canadian domestic flight (eg Vancouver Calgary) that all checked in baggage is a separate cost that you must pay at the airport?

    If you book with your international ticket your baggage is included.

    If you are flying air Canada and book the cheap ticket you will have to pay for baggage, it's all pretty clear in the ticket terms when you book. You need a 'flex' ticket to include baggage from memory. Essentially, the cheapest ticket on either westjet or air canada you'll then need to add baggage for $35 a bag (from memory) and then pay $50 odd for it to be a ski bag. Unfortunately, domestic travel in Canada is a bit of a bugger - oh and no food is included on any air canada domestic flight, you'll have to pay.

    and my agent is telling me you cannot pay in advance for your luggage (westjet) you have to use a card at the airport!

    Careful when flying both Air Canada and Westjet as luggage internationally is included with AC but then your maximum allowance domestic in Westjet is usually limited so you could be caught out with too much luggage that won't be allowed. Check both .ca websites yourself to be certain.
