Hi All

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.

Never had a problem, as djtech said, as long as you on a fare other than a basic one, which doesn't permit any checked baggage, you and everyone in your booking are permitted 32 kg per bag:


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

Tier Baggage allowance

Gold/oneworld Emerald

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

Silver/oneworld Sapphire

A checked baggage allowance of two bags when travelling in economy

For everyone in your booking, except on hand baggage only (Basic) fares*

A weight allowance of 32kg (70lb) per checked bag

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.
