As I understand it, CSA are members of IATA. As a memeber of IATA they must abide by the Montreal Convention. This means the carrier has sole responsibility for the baggage once you check it in regardless of who detained it, etc. If CSA are not playing ball it could be worth contacting IATA directly to try and mediate/offer advise.

The ABTA cover is only valid if you've booked through a travel agent. the Airline itself won't be ABTA registered.

comment How many types of Pound Sterling are there and what is the relationship between them?
@DJClayworth There is no such thing as an Irish Pound any more, the Irish (republic of Ireland) is in the Euro zone now.

That is a very interesting point @StephenKennedy, I've added the cited reference. I might have to make this a wiki at this rate.

Edited accordingly, @AleksG. I've never seen this happen. Possibly more common in London than North wales... :)
