A friend of mine is travelling SNN-LHR-DXB with EI and VS in the near future and booked the ticket through a third party travel website. She would be entitled to check-in one free bag under VS's baggage policy but would she have to pay the EI checked bag fee for the SNN-LHR/LHR-SNN flights? The whole ticket has one reservation number but EI and VS are not codeshare partners. Both EI and VS websites aren't clear on the arrangement here.

For the purposes of defining the baggage allowance, The "trip" is effectively SNN-DXB-SNN and therefore the better (long haul) allowance would apply. The 1st bag should be free as long as the whole trip is on the same itinerary.
