Any issues with BA codeshare checked luggage allowance?


My wife, 7 month old son and I are going to be flying from LHR to SNN via Aer Lingus in March 2019. We will have a total of three checked items (2 large suitcases and 1 travel cot) plus a stroller and a car seat. We plan to book our flights with British Airways via Expedia so that we can use credit card points to pay for the flights and so that we get a little more luggage allowance (69 kg versus 65 kg) for the same price (well, 1 cheaper).

I checked with a British Airways customer service representative today who confirmed that my wife, son and I will all receive a 23 kg bag checked allowance plus the stroller and car seat allowance, even though our son is only going to be flying as a lap infant.

Given how particular Aer Lingus appears to be with its baggage allowances according to its website and from reading various reports online, should we bring some proof from British Airways that confirms our checked luggage allowance or will Aer Lingus already know what we're allowed to bring and allow the full 3 x 23 kg?

I'm no expert on baggage rules but I'd definitely look for further confirmation as aer lingus seems to have a different baggage policy for infants in only allowing 10kg of extra checked baggage not a full 23kg.

Also the 23kg each I think refers to each bag and you can't combine the allowance into 2 bags if that is what you are suggesting... But I'm not sure maybe with infant allowance it is different

BA forum might be able to answer this also, tends to be more active.
