A friendly tip. I was advised by Qantas I was allowed 2 suitcases with limit of 32kgs. each on rtw trip I took late last year. The allowance was due to travelling back through the US. Be careful, I was nearly charged excess in Paris. In New York I was blessed with a lovely counter person, otherwise it would have been excess. The allowance with AA is two bags but limit of 55 pounds each, I think. I ended up buying another suitcase in DFW that overcame the excess problem.
