No experience with bringing pineapples back, but I think they would be considered as part of your luggage - either checked or carry-on, and the limits pertaining to those would apply. Hopefully someone who has flown on Westjet with pineapples can provide advice.

Here's a link to info from WJ's website - scroll down to "Seafood and Perishable Items" westjet.com/guest/…special-items.shtml

I'm hoping to get personal experience since so many people mention Pineapples fly free from Hawaii.

They do fly free on most airlines from Hawaii (ie you are not charged for them as a checked bag). Sorry I don't know but hopefully some other west jet fliers will help out.

OK, sorry - my mistake, I hadn't read of this before - but there is quite a bit of info in the review section for this company, and details on their website about free checked luggage:

Hopefully you'll get some first hand feedback here (or perhaps call WJ to see if you can get an answer from them) - and thanks for the 'heads up' on this!

I would recommend contacting Mr. Pineapple on Dairy Road. He seems to know which airlines allow, which do not, and which do not (but you can get away with it if you play dumb). Also, he has good prices on any size box, up to 12 (the website prices are for shipped pineapples).
