Will appreciate if someone can help me with this (very practical) question:
- A relative of mine is arriving to EWR on a Luftnansa flight from FRA and needs to connect to a domestic flight on UA. LH flight arrives at Terminal B, United flight leaves from Terminal A which, at EWR, automatically means that you have to leave the secure area, hop on the AirTran and go through security again. His luggage is techically checked through to the final destination in the US (SFO). How does the luggage re-chack work at EWR in this case? Is there a Star Alliance re-check desk after the customs in Terminal B (similar to, say, T5 in ORD)?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
