Austrian Baggage Allowance on award ticket (X)

Just booked an award ticket AMS-VIE-DEL. Wanted business but AMS-VIE was only available in economy so I booked a mixed cabin award (VIE-DEL is in business). Logged into my booking on Austrian website and booking is indicating I am permitted hand baggage only. Someone please assure me I'll get to check at least one 23kg bag! Also Star Alliance Gold (if that matters) and the AMS-VIE leg of the award is booked in (X) class.

Awards always have one bag, plus the second one as *G. You'll probably get away with the third one by virtue of the long haul J segment.

What does you ticket say? You should have the full allowance in a mixed cabin award. The award ticket document you got will clearly specify the allowance.

This was booked via Avianca and the award ticket document says nothing about baggage allowance...

+ 1 & I would expect the J allowance of 32 kilos.
