can anyone confirm, im currently gold, hubby and daughter red. on our way back from NYC to melb hubby and i have used points to upgrade to business on va but the delta nyc to la portion will be in economy, will hubby and daughter still get the baggage allowance as offered by va as in the 2 free bags (daughter flying econ on va not bus). hope that makes sense, trying to find out if im going to get charged at the airport at all. in between internal flights i have booked everyone delta first class so not a problem, this is the only flight on the trip that will be economy as i obviously am unable to upgrade. also in regards to lounges, what access will i have being gold, again we are all flying first class (not sure if that gets you lounge access) or if not can i bring in a guest will have hubby and 15 year old with me.
