(Canada) Air transat saying a CPAP machine is counted as a carry on

(Canada) Air transat saying a CPAP machine is counted as a carry on
I have an upcoming trip from Canada to the EU with Air Transat. I've been recently diagnosed with sleep apnea and will be carrying my APAP machine. I asked Air Transat on Facebook if they count it as a carry-on. They said yes and linked me to their website.
Then I shared Canadian government's link that says "The limit of two carry-on bags does not apply to medical supplies, equipment and mobility aids." But they're still saying it will be counted as a carry-on. Unfortunately, I can't share links here yet.

I have read many posts on the internet (including Air Transat) that airlines don't usually count these machines and they can be carried in addition to the standard carry-on limit. Does anyone have experience traveling with them?

So after a lot of back and forth, they confirmed I could bring my CPAP machine in addition to the standard 1 carry-on and 1 personal item included with the fare.

Hopefully, others will find this thread useful if they're traveling with Air Transat.

you're lucky because the cpap as free carryon is an american thing only, i know for a fact that European airlines are under no obligation to do any of that.

You are incorrect because it also applies in Canada.
