    Does anyone know if BA will enforce this for baggage that is checked through from another airline?

    I've always wondered about this - whenever I've flown Qantas (with whom I have extra allowance), I've never had a problem with my bags being checked through to my final destination, even if the connecting flights are on other (OW) airlines like BA, and I'm well over their allowance. (Perhaps I shouldn't admit this, but I once got 37kg checked through from Czech Republic to SYD, and that included a short flight on a prop plane :oops:).

    I'd imagine enforcing the penalty in a situation like this would be a somewhat difficult thing to achieve. Would they "hold your bags ransom" until you paid up?

    iirc, BA will be informing interline partners of the new restrictions and that they will be charging to the originating port when excess fees are not collected for interlined luggage
