    Winnipeg's crusading professor has won yet another round in his legal battle against airline baggage rules.

    The Canadian Transportation Agency released a decision Tuesday declaring Air Canada's international baggage liability rule unreasonable, and ordered that Air Canada replace it within 10 days.
    Gabor Lukacs, 29, an assistant professor of mathematics at the University of Manitoba, had asked for a review of a policy which said Air Canada couldn't be held liable for valuables such as money and jewelry in passengers' checked baggage on certain itineraries.
    The agency found it was unreasonable for Air Canada to have a blanket exclusion of liability.
