Baggage allowance for the Codeshare and the Interline Agreement Carriers
Codeshare and interline agreements are quite common in aviation industry. However, whenever there is flight involving the codeshare or interline partners, there is always a confusion as to which airlines’ baggage allowance would be applicable. In case of Qatar Airways, this is determined going with the Most Significant Carrier rule of IATA except for flights to/from/through USA and Canada. As per the MSC rule of IATA, the MSC is the one which is the first carrier to fly between two IATA areas or its sub areas or the first to cross the international border. (Check out the various areas in which IATA divides the world).
