Which baggage allowance is applicable if you have connecting flights with other airlines?
The Most Significant Carrier rule states that if another airline, other than Copa Airlines, operates the longest or most significant portion of the route, then this airline's policies may also be applicable to Copa Airlines flights or Copa Airlines flight numbers. For trips to or from the US, the Most Significant Carrier rule does not apply.
The baggage policies of the Marketing Carrier (MC), that is the carrier that sold the ticket, will be in effect when the departing or arrival city is located in the United States with code-share flights. However, the airline identified as the first airline on the ticket is free to move the Most Significant Carrier rule's requirement regarding baggage to another aircraft in the itinerary. In that situation, the entire flight would be governed by the policies of the other airline. You can reach out to us to get information on other airline’s baggage policies.
