Oneworld frequent flyers and in particular for my audience – Malaysia Airlines Enrich Gold and Platinum members receive new benefits from now! There are two new benefits added; Priority Baggage and Additional Checked Baggage.
Priority baggage delivery for Emerald and Sapphire cardholders
Many Oneworld airlines already offer priority checked baggage for their own top-tier frequent flyers, including Malaysia Airlines – but this is now being rolled out across all oneworld airlines for both Sapphire (Enrich Gold) and Emerald (Platinum) no matter what class you are travelling in.
Additional checked baggage allowance for Sapphire tier customers
From the 1st of December there are also some additional benefits for Sapphire Oneworld members (Enrich Gold) whereby the privilege given to Emerald recently is being extended. You’ll now receive an additional checked baggage allowance, these are the details:
- On international or domestic itineraries using the baggage allowance “weight” system – 15 kgs in addition to the ticketed Economy allowance.
- On international itineraries (including domestic sectors flown as part of international itineraries) using the baggage allowance “piece” system – a second bag, weighing up to 23 kgs, when the ticketed allowance is one bag.
- On purely domestic itineraries with flights using the baggage allowance “piece” system – the assurance of at least one piece of checked baggage, weighing up to 23 kgs, even when the regular ticketed allowance has no free allowance.
Here are a few of the conditions though:
- Priority baggage delivery is not available on flights operated by British Airways.
- The Sapphire baggage benefit does not apply to tickets issued using British Airways’ “hand baggage only” fares.
- For domestic routes operated by LAN Airlines, Sapphire cardholders may check in up to two bags with a combined weight not exceeding 23 kgs.
