Codeshare flights and checked baggage

Jump to last reply

I have a question about codeshare flights and checked baggage, in regards to whose fees I will have to pay.
I am flying on Lufthansa from Chicago O'Hare to Johannesburg, South Africa with a connecting flight in Frankfurt, Germany.
On the way back, I am flying on United from Johannesburg, South Africa to Chicago O'Hare with a connecting flight through London Heathrow.
Although my tickets are through Lufthansa and United respectively, the legs of the journey to and from Johannesburg (FRA-JNB and then JNB-LHR) are actually codeshare flights on South African Airways. Which airline fees do I pay?
For example, when I look up baggage allowances on South African Airways from JNB to LHR, I get one free checked bag.
When I look up the same route on United, I get 2 free checked bags.
My flight is booked through United, but is a codeshare with South African Airways being the operating airline. So which allowance and fees apply?
Thanks!
