travelling on BA from lyon to heathrow in economy. Family of 4, I am a Qantas platinum. we will only have 3 bags but one of these (guess whose) is likely to be over the 23kg, but less than 30 kg. How rigorous are BA with this weight limit ( most other one worlds offer >30kg to platinums) I don't really want to have 4 bags unless they force me to!

According to British Airway's website, your OneWorld Emerald (QF Platinum) status entitles you to the following:
One additional checked bag in any travel class
For everyone in your booking, except on hand baggage only (Basic) fares*
A weight allowance of 32kg (70lb) per checked bag
More information can be found on BA's site about this.
Regarding your question, since I assume you're not on a Basic fare, each person in your booking will have a 32kg allowance per checked bag so that will be plenty comfortable for your suitcase.

Silver and Gold Executive Club Members and equivalent members in other oneworld frequent flyer programmes get additional baggage allowances.

From a recent trip it seems like the carry-on allowance is at least 32kg, well at least my two bags added up to that (camera gear). I haven't had any issues in the past.
Hi Guest, join in the discussion on
Will BA enforce the 23kg weight limit for a Qantas platinum?
