mixed class LH/AC reward booking baggage?

Mrs. YVR is on an Aeroplan reward ticket for July 2016 : LNZ FRA YYC YVR.

LNZ FRA is in Y (LH metal)
FRA YYC YVR are in J (AC metal)

She is Elite 50K, although I booked this ticket so her status will likely not show (she'll have her Altitude card).

The Aeroplan reward ticket states:

Lufthansa baggage rules apply.
For flight(s): LH1251,AC845,AC221

1st bag: Complimentary
2nd bag: Complimentary

Max. weight per bag: 32 KG (70 lb) Max. linear dimensions: 158 CM (62 in)
Which is all good, but then there is this note on LH's web site that looks like it exempts them from the MSC rule if either the origin/destination country is Canada/USA:

http://www.lufthansa.com/online/port...en&cid=1000264

The baggage rules set by the airline which is listed first on the ticket are those that usually apply here. If Lufthansa is listed on the first flight segment of your ticket, then Lufthansa’s baggage regulations will apply to your entire journey (outbound and return flight). Rules on carry-on baggage may vary (local laws).

So what is she entitled to?

  • 2 * 70 lbs (per the Aeroplan ticket information)
  • 3 * 70 lbs (MSC rule as she has E50K status)
  • 1 * 50 lbs (LH rules in Y due to the MSC exemption, *Gold not recognized)
  • 2 * 50 lbs (per above, but *Gold recognized)

Her ticketed allowance is on the e-ticket. She will receive one extra bag due to her status

You will rec 2 free bags, but LH is good at giving the third bag for free too.

Thanks. Was a bit worried, especially since LH gives 0 free bigs to both their own Senators and *Gold on their lowest economy fares now.
