    I'm UA Gold and my wife (no status) is traveling TATL in UA economy later this week on an award ticket purchased with my miles. Does she "inherit" my baggage allowance or will she be limited to the standard single 23 kg suitcase?

    My understanding is that she inherits your status if the miles came from your account. If you look at your itinerary toward the bottom of the page, there is usually a helpful graph that states what baggage allowances you can expect for that particular PNR.

    Right you are on both counts. Many thanks. Next time I'll scroll further down the page.
