My grandson is returning home to Vancouver from Paris via Montreal , all with AC. Does he have to pickup his suitcase in Montreal and go through Customs or can he check in his luggage directly to Vancouver . He is 14years old and I would like to give him the correct information.
DJClayworth is right but that is only true if you are changing planes. I have personally done this flight before and we were not allowed to disembark in Montreal at all and so we didn't even have a chance to pick up our suitcase but this was a decade ago (Monday, September 7, 2009, AC885, seat 32A). Here's a forum post about this. So: your grandson needs to ask Air Canada in Paris how the connection is going to happen. Or you can let us know the flight number(s) and we can check.
