Star Alliance Gold Questions Master Thread
« on: April 29, 2012, 08:47:26 AM »
In order for companion to get the benefits of *G, they have to be listed on the reservation...

Suppose the ticket is mileage - can the miles for the tickets come from the companion who isn't *G or must it come from the account of the person who has *G?

Would it make a difference to the question if the *G status being used for benefits is from a different airline i.e. not the one being traveled on?

TIA!

If you're on the same reservation, it doesn't matter if its paid or mileage, where the miles come from or which airline the status is from, you'll get the bennies

US air only allows 3x50. Dan posted a jpg of the site last year when I asked this. Search the forums.

How about when I am flying from YYZ with AC to EWR to TLV with UA. Will I get UA rules 3x70 or AC rules? Thank you.

I just booked my wife and me to Israel on 2 separate confirmations so I could use 2 x $200 gift cards (thanks Amex!). I am United Gold and I booked my wife on Aegean Gold (Star Alliance). For the first time, She was only designated to get 1 bag of 50 lbs, as opposed to 3 bags of 70 lbs each. Did their rules change?

Which airline? Every airline gives a different amount if baggage you can bring.
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

Sorry, I booked on United. It took awhile, but the page changed and now my wife with Aegean Gold has 3 bags of 70 lb as before. My mistake.
