I would really appreciate your help.

On Wednesday I will be flying from LEX to LHR via ORD. AA4410 & BA0294

I've flown through ORD a zillion times however I have never actually been on a flight that has terminated at ORD. This time my two flights are not on the same reservation/ticket. Instead I have a flight with AA Eagle to ORD and then a BA ticket to LHR.

I assume that I will have to reclaim my bags at ORD and then check them back in with BA at Terminal 5. As I said above, I've never had to terminate a flight at ORD so I was wondering how to best work this.

Also, I will have 3 bags (per BA club World allowance) what are AA going to charge me for them?

Any info/advice would be much appreciated.

All the best,

Gulfstream650

Nope. Your contract with AA ends when you land at ORD, so you won't have any transatlantic allowances. You'll have to check your bags in LEX according to AA rules and again in ORD under BA rules.

Before the baggage fees a friendly check-in agent could send your bags through but I don't think this is the case anymore.

When you book two flights under 1 ticket the price is usually higher because of this kind of things (and the risk of losing your connection)

The CSR at LEX will be able to check your bags all the way through to LHR. Just give them your BA PNR and you should be good to go. That being said, I think you will have to pay for your additional bag (or bags if you're not a One World / AAdvantage Elite customer). On the flip side, as said above, a nice agent might let you through if you tell them you're flying J on BA.

Check your bags all the way thru give them your BA info and you will be fine. You will have to go thru security again at T5 and take the tram but thats it. How much time is btwn your flights eagle is horrible with losing bags just make sure you have 1hr30min for your bags to make the connection.

As long as AA gets their fee, why wouldn't they check the bags through?

Yes, it is a Oneworld rule even for separate tickets as long as its Oneworld to Oneworld connection. So AA will check the bags all the way through.

Whether you pay depends on Oneworld status assuming the AA leg is in Y
