URGENT! Oman Air: About baggage allowance

On the website, I can see that the free allowance is "max 2 baggage pieces with a combined weight 30kg".

Then, in the F.A.Q. :

"I am traveling in a group or with my family, what is our allowance?

Guests in Economy are entitled to 2 baggage pieces with a maximum combined weight 30kg."

So... my parents have to pack and I don't understand if the 30 Kg are the total even for two or more people, or 30Kg for each traveller. I don't fly much, so can someone answer me?

Each guest (passenger) is entitled to 2 baggage pieces with a maximum combined weight of 30 kg. But why are they even thinking of travelling with that much luggage?

It's 30kg total per person divided between a maximum of two bags.

"Guests in Economy are entitled to 2 baggage pieces with a maximum combined weight 30kg."

There's an unwritten "each" implied in there:

"Guests in Economy are [each] entitled to 2 baggage pieces with a maximum combined weight 30kg."

Otherwise if you took "guests" to mean "the combined total for the whole group", by extension if you had a very large group they'd only be able to take a hanky each. That doesn't make sense, now, does it?
