Alliance-wide free checked bag?

Postby CarefulBuilder14 » Mon Oct 05, 2015 8:04 pm

Are there any cobranded airline cards that give a free checked bag not just on flights operated by that one airline, but also on flights operated by all (or several) of that airline's alliance partners? My current understanding is that airline cards only extend that perk to flights of subsidiary/closely affiliated operators.

One thing nudging me to replace PRG with R-C is the greater flexibility of the airfare extras credit.

I think the only one that comes close is the Citi AA card that will give you free checked bags on AA and US Airways. Not really an alliance or network though.
Chase Freedom $9k~~Chase Sapphire Preferred $6.5k~~Amex Blue Cash Preferred $12.4k~~Citi Double Cash $4.7k
