Combining 2 Itiniaries Into 1 On AA

Hello all:

I have a slightly non-standard situation here. I will be taking my mother to RU this summer, and purchased tix ORD-DME on AA (and DME-TOF on S7, but thats a whole another story...) We live in different cities (she lives in CLE), and ORD was going to be our rendezvous point. She was originally going to drive to CHI couple days earlier to visit her friends etc etc, but now that fell through and she purchased a plane ticket instead CLE-ORD on same day as our ORD-DME flight is. So, now she has 2 separate itineraries:
1. CLE-ORD
2. ORD-DME

My question is: can this be arranged in such a way that she can:
a. Check-in in CLE all the way to DME
b. Have her luggage transferred from CLE-ORD leg to ORD-DME
c. Do the same but reverse on way back

My guess is that the way it is now, she has to go to luggage claim, get her bags, check in again, go through security, and check her bags right back, etc etc, and the only way to avoid this is to combine these 2 itineraries together. I got really good deal on ORD-DME tix, and any changes to itinerary would probably cost me a lot of cash, which I dont have right this moment. Any way to avoid this??

Any help is appreciated!!

When she checks in at CLE, she needs to ask the agent to check the bags all the way to DME.

They should do it if she has a valid ORD-DME itinerary.

I have done this before with AA, and yes they can check her in all the way to DME in CLE, including luggage and boarding passes. Just make sure she has both 6 letter record locators.

Something similar happened to me last summer. I live in Dallas and was planning to drive to IAH and fly CO from IAH-PTY but some last minute change of plans forced me to buy a ticket from DFW-IAH on a separate itinerary. The day I left I told the agent at the CO ticket counter if she could put them into one itinerary and she did but it took a while (well really just like 15 min)...


Organization is for people who are to lazy too look for things.

Thank you all for your replies:

Does it matter that second leg is international?
Will they be able to do the same at DME?

I did this with an international itinerary and I had no problems, and I can't think of any reason why they won't do it in DME. Remember she will have to claim her luggage and re-clear security in ORD on the return for customs and immigrations

yup..should be no problem. AA at LAX combined it all for me as I had 1 for LAX-MIA-MAD and another on IB, MAD-TNG. IB being a one world partner made it easier I presume.
