BAEC & MH Baggage Allowance

Hi,

I am flying MH LHR-SYD on Thursday in Economy.

I have spoken to 2 different people at MH who have told me I only get the standard 30KG allowance. Is BAEC Silver, I think I should get an extra 15KG as stated here. Is that right?

Thanks

Yes, this is also listed on MH's website: http://www.malaysiaairlines.com/my/e...allowance.html

oneworld Sapphire : One-piece additional baggage (piece concept) or 15kg (weight concept) for checked baggage allowance travelling on any oneworld partners applies.

Yes, you get an extra 15kg on top of 30kg and an additional piece of baggage. Also, MH limits each passenger in all classes to 2 pieces of baggage excluding their Enrich status holders. oneworld status holders are also subject to this limitation, so as a sapphire, you would have a limit of 3 pieces.

The agents on the phone probably mistook your BA Silver with MH Silver.

If still in doubt or if you encounter problems at check in:

Hope that helps.
