The airlines are British Airways and American Airlines (which, from what I understand, are partners). A friend bought my mother and I our tickets for our trip from Cairo (CAI)
-> Philadelphia (PHL) with a layover in London (LHR), which were booked through American Airlines.
My problem is, when I overviewed the confirmation and receipt with the baggage information, all it said under "Checked Bags / British Airways" was that the 1st bag is free and the 2nd is $85. And our friend said he could only buy 2 bags for my mother and I (one for me, one for her), which I'm guessing are those 2nd bags, which means this would apply per passenger if my thinking is correct (so
Passenger = 1st bag (free) + 2nd bag ($85) and this applies to each?).
Second, I need to know what we need to do for when we arrive in London, like, do we need to collect our bags and re-check them? If so, will we need to pay more fees or not?
