Emirates EK Baggage Allowances

Emirates Business 24-7 reported on 24 January 2011 that an EK announcement dated 23 January 2011 said the "... extra baggage allowance of 10kg hitherto to economy class passengers on selected routes will be withdrawn with effect from February 1, 2011." Actual news release from EK not supplied or found. Baggage allowance details below based on EK information 01 March 2011, unknown if adjusted for reduction or not - they appear to be the same allowances as prior to the EK announcement. Assume actual allowances for economy class are 10 kg less than stated below unless you have official information to the contrary. EK website baggage FAQs says "Emirates has one of the world's most generous baggage policies. Economy Class customers can check in 30 kg, ..." (last checked 01 March 2011). But check the terms and conditions of your ticket carefully for any revised baggage allowances or other small print that will allow EK to sting you with excess baggage charges.

Emirates partner airlines and codeshare agreements (not a complete list)

With Partner Airlines, Skywards frequent flier members get air miles credited to their accounts when they fly on one of the partner airlines, which, as of February 2012, include:

With codeshare agreements, airlines share bookings under the code of one airline (although a different airline might be used for some flights) to make it easier for passengers to book flights to a greater number of destinations on the same ticket.

Emirates interline agreements - tickets can be booked and paid for with one carrier but use another carrier's routes. Interline partners mean it should be possible to check baggage right through to destination when changing from one carrier to another at a stopover or in transit. List below as of 20 April 2012.
