OK a.netters, I have a few questions for you guys. I am going to traveling to BEY on Sunday via ORD, CDG, and BUD. My MCO-ORD ticket is seperate from my ORD-BEY ticket. It goes like this:

MCO-ORD on UA
ORD-CDG on AA
CDG-BUD on MA
BUD-BEY on MA

I have about a 5 hour wait in ORD, but I'm debating whether to have the UA representative at MCO check in all my bags to BEY since they have a baggage interline agreement with AA and MA, or if I should pick them up in ORD and then recheck them in with AA all the way to BEY since that portion is on an entire ticket to BEY.

What do you guys think given the circumstances?

I say just interline the bags and not have to worry about it. I did it with 2 tickets on a JFK-CDG-JNB-LVI on a AF/SA set of tickets.

Be sure to have a print out of the AA/MA flights with PNR and flights. This way you can document the exact flights and won't need to worry about the bags matching with you flights (or not matching and being delayed).

You don't think that there's more of a chance for them to get lost? I'm afraid the transfer in ORD between UA and AA, they're might be some mishap.

Well bags can get "lost" on a one segment non-stop flight, so there is always a chance. These days with electronic tracking you should be fine. When you get to ORD to check in with AA and get your boarding passes they should ask for the baggage claim checks. They will need to input that information in the system to ensure your bags are matched to you for the respective flights. This is a good check point to verify that the process is going well.

I had some hesitation when I checked in at JFK for my flights as I had 12 hrs in Paris and the AF to SA transfer was in JNB. Plus I was traveling for a month so getting to LVI without bags would have been a challenge. I put my faith in the technology and the system - it worked fine.

Alright, sounds good. I think I'll just interline them from MCO. Thanks for your assistance
