Baggage allowance on codeshare and interline journeys

If your journey includes travel on an airline other than Qatar Airways, including a Qatar Airways codeshare flight operated by another airline including Cathay Pacific, that operating airline may offer you a lower baggage allowance. Baggage allowances on codeshare routes are determined by IATA's Most Significant Carrier (MSC) rule.

In the case of codeshare or interline flights that form part of an itinerary where the ultimate ticketed origin or destination is a point in the USA and Canada, the baggage allowances and charges applicable at the beginning of the itinerary will be applied throughout the journey.

The new interline baggage rules for Canada take effect for all tickets issued on/after 01 April 2015.

Electronic devices on flights to the United States

According to a security measure imposed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in the USA, all electronic devices carried by customers traveling to the USA must be fully charged before boarding flights to the US.

You must be able to turn on their electronic devices at security checkpoints in order to prove they are genuine, so it is advisable to carry the chargers for any electronic devices in your hand baggage.
