Carry on climbing gear @ Sydney Airport: problem 17-Jul-2006 At 7:58:30 AM The Keeper
Air Canada is probably the worst - they pulled my suitcase with climbing clothes (no gear) and it arrived in Canmore a day late and too late for a planned climbing outing with Yamnuska - I ended up having to buy some new clothes at Valhalla Pure to ensure I could climb. When I asked at the Calgary AC baggage counter about delivery of my delayed bag to Canmore I was told " Not in 10 minutes" as if I asked for that! Then I was told we should all learn to travel with less stuff - really now - after having paid for two bags to get from here to there. That was the final straw - I no longer will fly AC - I have alternatives out of here and elsewhere in Canada and will fly good old Quantas down under again. Since I will be down under regularly in the coming years - our national airline (disgrace) will be the big loser.

In 2004, I brought four ice hockey sticks with me through baggage security and Aussie Customs - no hassles - they probably thought it was a newly developed form of boomerang and how could any crazy Canuck throw one of those things with any effect!!
The test this trip will be a Canadian rugby jersey - that scandalous and ultra insurgent piece of attire should have them thoroughly confused and reeling in great in - security!
