Ive had no problems in the past with air canada. they treat ur stuff dece, just out 3 ski straps on (dependsing on camber/rocker) and in a ski bag and they shuold be fine, if they get run over by a tank ang get broken, you then should talk to em, but really, in a bag, with straps, not much an happen. if u can carry on your boots. and toss them above you. thats a good way to keep them safe and warm (they might erturn the favour later ahah) i did tht last yr, but not mamy ppl were a fan of me there, they thought i was gunna go on a rampage and kill everyone, but thats how everyone thinks on a plane ahha.
are you really worried about your skis sliding around and scratching one another? this feels like a troll to me. im pretty sure jibbing one rail would damage your skis more than an airline ever will.
but if you're being dead serious, i've known people that saran wrap their skis to keep them completely secure and locked together. i find it a little redundant, since skis are something that take heavy abuse any way, and since skis will go into the oversize storage area they get a lot more care. i've taken a desktop computer and a television on a plane before with little to no worries about having them damaged. if you have any concerns at all, it should be about them getting lost. i've had that happen a few times. fuckin westjet......
