Sorry if this is a stupid question.
I know that AA/LX codeshare on many routes and that they also have reciprocal frequent-flyer benefits. However, what happens in the following case:
Next Monday (18JUL2005) I am flying CCS - MIA on AA 2106 and then continuing MIA - ZRH on LX 65.
The CCS-MIA portion is not codeshared with LX, and is operated by AA. The MIA-ZRH is codeshared with AA and operated by LX. I have two separate tickets. One is the AA ticket for CCS-MIA and the other is an LX ticket for MIA-ZRH. I'm guessing what I won't be able to check in for the LX flight in CCS, right?
What about later on, when LX joins Star Alliance, will it be possible to do something like this? (i.e. check-in for a UA flight that connects to a LX flight)
Thanks for your help!
