Emirates/Qantas code share

Flying on an emirates flight booked through Qantas. Anybody know whose baggage allowance I should follow? Emirates is 30kg but Qantas states only 23kg. No response from either customer service yet....

Thanks in advance

If you're booked direct through qantas, the info at 'manage my booking' online details each flight and luggage allowance on each flight individually. I booked from Hobart and even the domestic part to Melbourne allows me 30kg. ( I booked after the change so the whole journey is 30kg.) but its quite clear as it details each flight separately.

Just flown LHR to Per on Emirates on a Qantas ticket. Allowance was 30kg for Economy pax....and unlike previous Qantas rules in that fare category more than one piece was allowed. Just as well as I could not lift a 30kg bag!

I believe since the launch of the partnership the baggage allowances have been streamlined, meaning 30kg on both airlines. Baggage allowance will be even more generous if you are a high tier FF or travelling business or first class. This is more than many airlines allow you to check in without additional fees.

Just to confuse things I had a reply fron qantas to say the allowance is as per the ticket at 23kg. Makes no sense to me

If you bought your ticket before 26 February this year then the 23kg still stands. If after that date then it is 30kg.

However as you will see on the Qantas website it also depends on where you are going..you didn't,t say.....
