Anyone fly WestJet with your dress?

Crunch time is here and I'm freaking out a little :)  Called westjet this morning to see what their policy is on carrying dresses on board.  She was not helpful - basically said it has to fit into a 21.5 inch x 9 inch x 15.5 inch bag.  There is no way it will fit.  Just curious if anyone had luck carrying it in a garment bag?

    When I called Westjet customer service she said I could carry my dress in the garment bag the bridal store provided no prob. I said it was big and puffy. She said it would be okay. She was more concerned with me laying it properly in the overhead bins so that it wouldn't get crushed lol!

    They better honor this when we board the plane or I will be PISSED!

    I didn't fly westjet---I can't even remember which airline we took...but, I did take my dress on. If you look at my sig, you can tell just how BIG it is. I knew the only way I'd get it on was to put it in a carry on bag---and that the only way it would fit there, was to put it in a Space Bag and suck the air out of it. I knew I was getting it pressed anyway when I got to Vegas---so, it didn't matter if it was wrinkled.

    And? Worked perfectly!

    I got them from Target---not sure you have Targets in Canada---but, they sell them at most big chain stores (WalMart, KMart, Target...etc). It was $12 for two XL bags, so I put my crinoline in one and my dress in the other, and they both ended up fitting in a small carry-on size luggage :)

    Space bags are great. Good call on that Rach.
