Awesome. Thank you guys.
I'll still call the airline ahead of time but my experience with these things is that the answer tends to vary according with the person that answers the call
Like the last time when I called BA
asking if I could check my bags through despite the fact that I had a stop-over in London. And answer was no but when I checked-in at the airpot the first thing they asked was if I wanted to check my bags through
Obviously I said yes and has to repack everything. But once again, thanks for the answers.
