    I can't like this enough. At the OWMD I spoke to the OW reps in DFW at the museum and they asked me why I flew with them etc etc. During the conversation I mentioned that a real point of annoyance for myself (and others I know) was no consistent baggage allowance over the alliance. The response was 'Yeah you're not the first to say that!'.

    Great to see OW listening to its airlines customers, and working out a deal. This puts *A well behind IMHO. I never did get the 2 tier system, with airlines reserving F lounges and top tier benefits for their home airlines. This now cements me as a OW fanboy even more than I already was!

    That was also mentioned, although CX and AA do a great job of priority tagging this QF OW Emerald's bags ;)

    The lack of 3 free bags for oneworld elites unlike star and skyteam is a shame.

    Fairly useless to me in truth as I never check bags and seem to be able to get FastTrack most of the time with AA.
