I'm a little confused by Basic Economy checked baggage allowance with OneWorld status (e.g. Sapphire, Emerald) specifically on connecting flights with multiple carriers.

Which baggage allowance is most important? The first flight? The longest flight? Some other combination?

I've phoned AA and contacted their Twitter team and I get all sorts of different answers in the following scenario;

I'm planning on travelling DCA-BOS-LHR all in Basic Economy, all on the same ticket
- DCA-BOS operated by AA, marketed by AA
- BOS-LHR operated by BA, marketed by IB
- Ticket stock with Iberia.

AA told me today that as OneWorld Sapphire, I was told that I should expect:
- 0 bags
- 1 bag
- 2 bags

Its alllllll so confusing! Can anybody here clarify which of these is most likely?

Thank you in advance!
