Seamless service

As a oneworld passenger, our aim is to provide you with unrivalled service, support and recognition every time you travel within our extensive alliance network. You can read more below about oneworld Global Support and baggage information.

Connecting between airlines at unfamiliar airports can be a stressful experience, especially if your flight is delayed. oneworld recognises the impact delays and missed connections can have on your plans and on your life. That is why oneworld member airlines have partnered together to form teams of connections experts: oneworld Global Support.

At select airports across the alliance network, teams are proactively monitoring connecting flights and, whenever possible, they will meet and assist you if your connection is in jeopardy. The oneworld Global Support teams will do their best to allow you to use dedicated fast track lanes through immigration or security to help you catch your next flight. Our teams will also do everything possible to transfer your baggage so that it makes it on time to your final destination.

If you miss your connecting flight, the oneworld Global Support team will provide you with updated travel information, a new boarding pass and, where applicable, assistance with overnight accommodations.

oneworld Global Support is currently available at London Heathrow, Madrid-Barajas, New York JFK, Miami, Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago O'Hare, Los Angeles, Tokyo Narita and Hong Kong. The service is offered at these airports whenever possible, subject to operational constraints.

At oneworld, our member airlines work together across the network to ensure the seamless and efficient transfer of your luggage.

As individual oneworld airlines have different allowances and weight limits for both checked luggage and carry on items, please check the specific baggage information for the member airline on which you are flying before you travel.

If your journey involves more than one oneworld airline, or your flight is a code-share flight, where the operating carrier is different to the one shown on your ticket, your baggage allowance may be different to the allowance provided by the operating carrier.

This is due to new industry rules that regulate which baggage allowance and excess baggage charges, if applicable, shall apply when you travel with more than one airline on the same itinerary. These rules are designed to make it easier for you as a customer to know how much checked baggage you can take on your journey.

Contact the airline you are flying with before you travel, and they will be able to advise you of your applicable baggage allowance.


Different countries and airlines have varying security requirements for both checked-in and carry-on luggage. To ensure your transfer through airports is as smooth as possible, please check security information with your departing oneworld member airline before you travel.
