    Rule on the AC website:

    Ski or snowboard boot bag:

    One boot bag is permitted per passenger and will not count as a piece of checked baggage if:
    • it is carried along with skis or snowboard and
    • it contains only boots.
    A boot bag will count as a separate piece of checked baggage if:
    • it contains - or is designed to contain - other items, or
    • it is not carried along with a snowboard or set of skis.
    I was wondering how strictly they enforce this rule, my main question being can you put your ski helmet in with the boots, and still have it accepted along with the skis as a single piece of checked baggage?

    I have had it applied wery firmly with WS, with AC it has not been a problam since as an elite I am allowed 3 bags. The dispute with WS was that my boot bag has a centre section for jackets gloves and the like. They tried to claim it was a suit case, this year they narrowed the discription and I would likley have to pay.
