If it's one ticket, it should go by MSC (most significant carrier), which - in this case - would be Air Berlin business.

Did you check online? Google? Common sense?

Yes. Mentioned in first post when I asked that wasn't clear on their website. Didn't find anything clear with Google. Not sure how common sense plays a role in baggage policy. Either way do you know the answer? Thanks for ur help

   Has anyone flown Air Berlin J with a lap child? I booked it with BA and 24 hours later it still didn't ticket so I called AB and they said infants are not allowed in J and I must call back BA to switch the flight.

Yes. And they even went out of their way to ask on their own behalf the passengers in the front row (unlimited leg space approx. 4 windows) to switch with us to get the bassinet.

But again that was the old J, don't know if the new layout would allow for a bassinet.

They claim it doesn't have Bassinets now,  how did you book it?  Award via BA?

It's not ticketed yet, if the infant is what's stopping it from ticketing then adding it later still be different?

Don't call AB for ticketing issues. Call BA. Don't mention to them that AB told you anything. Let them figure out what the issue is and have it ticketed.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

Ok thanks will do.
The real reason I called AB was for seats and food.
