Please refer to your electronic ticket which shows your checked baggage allowance and which carrier’s allowances and charges apply.

Itinerary including flights operated by other airlines (connection flights or codeshare flights)
According to IATA Resolution 302, a step-by-step process to that determines which carrier’s rule to apply for an interline journey, where, for each checked portion:
- If carrier provisions are the same, such provision will apply
- If different, apply provisions of “Most Significant Carrier” (MSC)
In case this is a code share flight, apply the provision of operating carrier
- If MSC does not publish its provision, apply the rule of the Check-in carrier
- If the Check-in carrier does not publish its provision, apply Operating carriers’ provisions sector-by-sector
According to the section 399.87 requirement by U.S. Department of Transportation (US DOT), for passengers whose ultimate ticketed origin or destination is a U.S. point, U.S. and foreign carriers must apply the baggage allowances and fees that apply at the beginning of a passenger's itinerary throughout his or her entire itinerary.
In the case of code-share flights that form part of an itinerary whose ultimate ticketed origin or destination is a U.S. point, U.S. and foreign carriers must apply the baggage allowances and fees of the marketing carrier throughout the itinerary to the extent that they differ from those of any operating carrier.
So if passengers whose ultimate ticketed origin or final destination is a U.S. point, the free baggage allowance for the complete itinerary shall apply the exceptional rules governed by US DOT and determined by the first marketing carrier. The first marketing carrier has the option to use the MSC methodology to determine which carrier’s baggage allowance and fees to apply.
