    so, heading to japan from sydney next season with JAL and taking a suitcase and board by itself in board bag. Has anyone had to pay charges flying from sydney? or will they just let u on.
    Also for a qantas domestic flight to sydney has anyone experienced taking a board on those flights for free as i believe it may count as one piece, thus needed to buy extra baggage passes. Thanks!!

    Definitely contact JAL with this question.

    Domestically, I have never had any issues with Qantas with skigear... just tick the right box for check in of sports (ski) gear.

    Except if your allowance is one piece, and you have a suitcase and a board bag it’ll likely be considered two pieces, even if you’re under the weight limit for one - I’d call them and check. Especially as a pre-purchase of extra baggage is usually much cheaper than being hit with it at the airport.

    I thought piece limit only applies in North America. Happy to be corrected for Oz domestic allowance, but fairly confident weight limit applies.

    Im pretty sure JAL gives you 2 x 23kgs of checked bags. Not sure about Qantas though.
