This November I will be flying from London, Heathrow to Melbourne for at least a year using Air China. According to their website I can only take one item of checked luggage at 20KG. This dosnt seem much especially for an international flight. I also want to take my skis and boots. However I cant see anything that says if I will get charged for sporting equipment, if sporting equipment is free or if they have a set price for sporting equipment. There is something about a charge per KG which is based on 1.5% of the cheapest one way ticket, which makes it all the more confusing as it still dosnt give me a price to work around if I did have to pay extra. In my experience most of the airlines i flew with didnt charge for ski equipment or had a set price of around £15-£35 for the extra equipment.
Just hoping there will be somebody here who might be able to help me out a little or has any advice etc
