I have a question about checked baggage on connecting flights from Vancouver to Honolulu. We're arriving in Vancouver from Toronto using WestJet, and from what I see on the Vancouver airport site, we'll need to collect our baggage in Vancouver. Is this right? I thought for connecting flights it went through with the airline.

Thanks for any help!

The luggage goes straight through. You do need to go through US customs in Vancouver where they will make you wait in a room until your bag is confirmed on a screen. Once that happens you can go talk with a US agent to be cleared through.
