Hi all,

Just a quick query regarding entitlements for a OW Ruby flyer. I understand complimentary baggage is offered for the 1st bag however does this extend to another person listed on the same booking?

Are there any other perks that I should be aware of?

Cheers,
Jim

The free bag for OW Ruby is actually an improvement. IIRC as late as last year ruby was excluded from any free bags at all?

I was more thinking non-AA ruby members. I checked the allowance last year and I excluded from a free bag (being QF).

I have heard that all guests travelling on the same booking managed by a OW Ruby passenger they all received the complimentary first bag, however I cannot for the life of me find this anywhere in their allowances.

Might make a quick call to AA to clarify!

The checked bag fees will be waived for all elite members and guests traveling on the same reservation (excluding group reservations) for travel in the Main Cabin on flights marketed and operated by American Airlines or marketed by American or American Eagle.[/QUOTE]

From https://www.aa.com/i18n/AAdvantage/eliteStatus/elite-benefits-chart.jsp

Although that doesn't seem clear whether that applies solely to AA elite status or OW status more generally? (Although granted AA seems pretty generous when it comes to OW status benefits.)

Managed to find a clear description here but am unable to post link due to low post count!

The following customers will be allowed a first checked bag at no additional charge provided it falls within the size and weight limitations.

  • For customers travelling to or from destinations of selected cities in Mexico, Caribbean and Central America^
  • oneworld alliance Ruby members
  • Customers flying on the same reservation as an American Airlines AAdvantage Gold member or oneworld alliance Ruby member regardless of frequent flyer status or fare type (not applicable to group bookings)
  • Alaska MVP members (tickets purchased after April 8, 2014)

Cheers :)
