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:
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??

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.

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
