It depends on which carrier you are flying. If you redeem Avios for an Economy Class ticket on an AA domestic (and even some international routes), BA will refer to the AA flight as HBO. But, in fact, even though no free checked baggage is included on such tickets, AA will permit oneworld elites to check one or more bags for free; the exact number depends upon the particular oneworld status.
