Hello OP,

I do not the exact term, but you are covered by the carrier's rule where you have the longest leg, i.e, LAX-DEL. If Cathay Pacific says you can have two free bags, then AA will (better) allow you to have two free bags.

That's my understanding.

IATA resolution 302 with the US DOT exemption, means the baggage allowance for the entire booking (including any return journey on the same ticket) will be that of the Marketing carrier for the first journey's LAX-DEL leg.
