After spending 1+ hour on the phone to Qantas, and 30 minutes on the phone to AA, I am more confused than ever!
Having flown SYD-LAX-IAD a couple of weeks ago, I am soon to fly MCI-LAX-SYD. All on the one ticket. The MCI-LAX leg is AA metal, with a QF flight number.
I flew to the USA with two checked bags, but would like to bring THREE checked bags home to Australia. I am a Qantas Club member, but only a bronze FF.
Qantas say that AA will make me pay for the third checked bag on the MCI-LAX leg. I called AA - they said they don't know! They said the check-in staff at MCI *might* let me check in the third bag for free, or they might charge me close to $200USD.
As you might imagine, I'm keen to avoid that cost if possible. Has anyone been in this circumstance?
