    Has anyone had issues with skis on Virgin AT7 aircraft.
    Their baggage info indicated a maximum of 1.8M length.
    Most ski bags are a bit longer than this.
    Problem for us is all Virgin Canb to Syd flights are AT7.

    Never done Virgin with skis, but have flown Qantas plenty of times with skis without a problem. I’m on a Dash 8 in both directions.

    I’m not sure the AT7 is designed for skis... but would be good for landing at Casey...
