Interline Baggage

 

Airlines have changed their baggage allowance and charges in accordance with IATA Resolution 302 which is effective  01 April 2015 the most significant carrier(MSC)  is the Marketing carrier.

This new system has removed industry standard baggage allowance and charges and introduced new rule of the Most Significant Carrier (MSC) which applies for interline journey. Each carrier can now publish its own rules.

Most Significant Operating Carrier

For journeys not covered by the US itineraries, the Most Significant Carrier (MSC) is the Operating Carrier as follows:

  •  For a travel between two or more Tariff Conference areas:
     The carrier performing carriage on the first sector that crosses   from one area to another
  •  For a travel between all three Tariff Conferences:
     The carrier providing carriage on the first sector that crosses   between TC1 and TC2
  •  For a travel within a Tariff Conference area:
     First carrier that crosses from one sub-area to another
  •  For travel within a Tariff Conference sub-area:
     The carrier performing carriage on the first international sector
  •  For travel within a single country:
     The first Operating Carrier on the checked portion

Baggage Rule to Apply

  • If different, apply provisions of “Most Significant Carrier” (MSC).
  • In case of code-share flights this will be the Operating Carrier, unless that carrier publishes a rule stipulating that it will be the Marketing Carrier.
  • If MSC does not publish its provision, apply the rule of the Check-in carrier
  • If the Check-in carrier does not publish its provision, apply Operating carrier's provisions sector-by-sector

US Itineraries (US Exceptions)

  • If passenger is booked on domestic single interline e-ticket, the baggage allowances and fees of first carrier apply throughout the itinerary
  • If passenger is booked on domestic single interline e-ticket with marketing code-share flight number shown on first sector, the baggage allowances and fees of such carrier apply throughout the itinerary
  • If there is a stopover on a domestic itinerary with multiple carriers, the baggage allowances and fees that apply at the beginning of passenger's itinerary apply to the entire itinerary, regardless of whether there are any stopovers in the itinerary
  • In the case of a passenger US domestic & international itinerary composed of more than one ticket, the individual baggage allowances and fees will apply
  • Baggage rules for international single e-ticket interline and code-share itineraries apply as follows:
  • 1.  If the first segment of an e-ticket is not a code-share flight, then the airline operating that segment determines the baggage fees and allowances that apply throughout that passenger's journey.
  • 2. If the first segment of an e-ticket is a code-share flight, then the marketing carrier for that segment determines the baggage allowances and fees that would apply on all the remaining flights on that e-ticket.
  • The carrier for the first flight on the e-ticket is free to decide if rule of Most Significant Carrier apply or if the baggage allowances and fees of first carrier will apply.

Non-acceptance of MSC Rule by Carriers

There may be non-US carriers, like some Low Cost Carriers (LCCs) which do not apply MSC rule.
