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!
2 bags since you are OW Sapphire, just make sure they have your FF# on your reservation. The only time you will not get the OW benefit is with BA hand bag fares.
