    I'm *A Gold (on Aegean).

    United website provides that I get 3 70 lb. checked bags on a TATL to Europe. An upcoming itinerary has 4 passengers on the smae locator.

    Does the additional baggage benefit apply only to me or to all of the passengers on the locator?

    Website is ambiguous.

    Not sure about United, but I had assumed all passengers on a PNR with a *A Gold would be given the same baggage allowance for a flight earlier this year on Air New Zealand. After a lengthy discussion with the agent, I paid to check several bags. I'd recommend hoping for free checked bags, but expect to pay.

    Unless you're going for 3 months, I hope that all four of you don't actually need three 70lb bags each ;)

    Many people think about others beside themselves.
    Whenever we go to BKK we're maxed out with care packages for the village where clothing, food, toys, candy, and basic needs are appreciated by ALL! Not everyone packs for themselves only, but I appreciate your humor.;)

    Truth be told, I fibbed a bit.

    The actual passenger is a good friend who is also Aegean Gold and moving his family to Berlin for 3 years. He wants every free pound he can get.

    That sounds like a great use of your baggage allowance!

    *G gets 3 x 70 free
    Companions of *G get 2 x 70 free

    I'm not 100% sure if the companions have to be in the same PNR but I would think the answer should be assumed to be 'yes'.
