Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Help with 2 ABS canisters and triggers on Thomas Cook flight??

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi

I have borrowed an ABS bag for a trip flying tomorrow with Thomas Cook. My mate lent me 2 canisters and 2 triggers as said always better to have a spare. Agreed. I called Thomas cook and they said my g/f can carry the spare canister and trigger (but she doesn't have an ABS rucksack) but the IATA regs say only 1 of each... And I don;t necessarily trust the call center guy. Anyone got any experience shares.

Thanks in advance

PS I was holding out to buy a Jetforce Bag to avoid this issue but I am told the are not "drinks bladder" compatible which seems a big oversight.

@RobertCroydon, The IATA rules only allow one person, so the other can be carried in their hold luggage. Checkin is one thing, the security on the scanners have nothing to do with the airline.

I’ve used my Jetforce with a bladder without issue, it’s easy to route it so it works. If the bladder burst that might be a different issue, but anything that managed to burst the bladder while your wearing it, would probably mess you pretty badly anyway.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Hi - Can you send me a picture or instructions on of how you use the bladder with the Jetforce as I asked 3 retailers and the manufacturer and they said the only thing to do was leave the bag Zip open and route it that way.

If you put the canister and trigger in the hold luggage, do you need to tell them at check in?

You do route the hose through the zip, but the gap is no bigger than when the zip is closed normally, it works fine.

You need to tell the airline wherever you are carrying it. I never risked taking them as hand luggage, as it’s way more diffcult to deal with security than the checkin staff.

Do you just check in the canister and trigger in the hold luggage. Didn't want to put the whole rucksack in check-in as it will have my laptop etc etc in it.

My ABS always went in my hold bags with the canister and trigger inside it. I always carry my ski boots in another rucksack as my cabin bag, as the boots wouldn't fit in the ABS. My boots are more important to my skiing that the airbag.

If you are going to put the canister and trigger in your hold bag by themselves, make sure that you leave a copy of the ABS technical sheet and IATA 2.3 regulations with it. Just in case your bag gets searched. Ideally the canister and trigger should be in their cardboard box.
