Best way to book NYC - bru . in Y. Round trip or one way ?

Etihad, 21,972 in Y RT & 36,620 in J RT + $95 in taxes for travel on SN.

Its an amazing redemption, maybe the best value in the industry

Link?
What if i take that email with to the airport? I'll have AC refund me any cost incurred in buying an extra suitcase in the airport and checking an extra piece.  ;D
Either way, I much prefer 2 X 70lb than 1 X 99lb. Anyone have PE that was allowed 2 X 70lb for infant?
This is what united had for my infant booked through AC, although the AC confirmation email said only 1 50lb bag for infant.

Thank you.
As far as I know. There are 3 airlines having direct flights United  jet. Brussels, so Singapore would be with a stop ?

They were missing from the list & I was questioning that because as a OW partner they should have an interline agreement. But then on the other hand I knew of a issue with luggage to Europe.. Anyways...

Ok, but to answer the OP, BA and EK indeed interline.

I will take your word for it. I am going to doubt the fact if its done on 2 separate tickets if it interlines.. Im very curious if thats the case!

Interlining has nothing to do with how it's ticketed.
