Brussels wet lease of CSA Czech Aircraft

Hi all,
I've booked an itinerary (through United.com) that includes a BUD-BRU segment. It's SN2830 which is "Operated by CSA Czech Airlines". I think this is just a wet lease of the aircraft and it's actually Brussels Airlines operated.

Does anyone know how baggage and *G benefits work in this situation?

PS - I'm guessing this has been discussed before but I can't find a thread through the horrible search function of FT.

Thanks,
RM

CSA is currently operating for LH and EW in wet lease. For all practical purposes (*G bennies, miles credit etc) this will be a SN flight.

So I took this flight this week. Some interesting things to note about the wet lease:
1. Check in was with Brussels (LH-group) area at BUD. No issues with checking my bag.
2. The plane was painted in OK colors (tail and wing tips) but "Eurowings" was written on the side of the plane. The plane was registered as OK-NEO.
3. The interior of the plane was OK in that the drop-down monitors from the passenger service units were all OK-coded, including the in-flight map.
4. The FAs wore OK-coded name pins.
5. English was the only language spoken on the plane by the FAs. They apologized in advance that they had no Dutch or French speaking FAs for the flight. No Czech or Hungarian was spoken either.
