Baggage check-in rules on TG-NH itinerary

I have a reservation on a LifeMiles award ticket: BKK-NRT on TG in Business, connecting with NRT-IAH in NH in First.

- TG's Business free baggage allowance is two pieces.

- NH's First free baggage allowance is three pieces.

How many pieces can I check for free in Bangkok for that trip?

"In the old days," ISTR the rules of the "significant carrier," i.e. NH in this case as the overwater long-haul carrier, would apply, but I know this is a new millennium so don't know how it would work these days.

One ticket. Where do I find the baggage allowance? I can't view the ticket on the LifeMiles site where I booked it.

On the TG website, when I enter my RLOC and name, the link for "Baggages details" only scrolls to a box with hazardous materials information...

Can you pull down the flight itinerary for TG? It should be indicated like picture below.

Hmmm. When I go to https://www.thaiairways.com/en_US/index.page, select "MY BOOKING," enter my RLOC and name, I get:



How did you get the format of the reservation like you posted?

I see the ticket stock is 202, so this ticket is not issued by THAI. That might explain things,

NH is the MSC I think, and so you’d need to check NH or with the ticketing airline (Avianca?)

Or establish a free CheckMyTrip account and enter the booking reference.

I’d be nervous if my LifeMiles account couldn't access a booking made using their miles .....
