Oneworld adds new top tier benefits
Published: 31/01/2013 - Filed under: News »
Malaysia Airlines officially becomes a member of the Oneworld alliance at midnight tonight (Kuala Lumpur time), and the alliance has taken the opportunity to coincide celebrations with the addition of two new top tier benefits.
From February 1 Oneworld Emerald status members will be entitled to an extra checked luggage allowance when travelling on any Oneworld airline, above the standard limit for the cabin class they are travelling in.
This means passengers will benefit from either one additional item where the piece concept applies, or an extra 20kg where a weight policy is used.
In addition Emerald members will now be able to use fast track security lanes “when flying from select key airports worldwide on select Oneworld member airlines”.

Can we get clarification on this: already BA gives Golds the benefit of 'waiving' its heavy baggage fee, meaning luggage can be up to 32kg.
Does that mean a Gold member travelling in First gets 3x32kg and a 20kg bag?
