Lufthansa -> UA Bag Through Check?

Flying LH from SVQ to FRA in Y and then UA to the US in J as a *G. However, they are two separate PNRs.
I assume they’ll through check but will they follow my LH baggage allowance at 2x23 or my UA at 3x32 since that’d be the most significant carrier if it was one PNR?

Assuming you have booked an Economy Basic or Flex fare on the SVQ - FRA leg, you will get (1+1) x 23 kg baggage allowance on this leg. If it is an Economy light fare your baggage allowance will be 0 x 23 kg. (even for *G).
As it is not a single ticket, UA is not the "most significant carrier".
