My wife and I are flying DEN - LIH via LAX next week on AA. Our DEN - LAX flight is Tuesday evening and our LAX - LIH is Wednesday morning. We are staying overnight at the Raddison to avoid what would have been a tight 40 minute connection. My question is, can we check our bag straight through to LIH on Tuesday night when we check-in at DEN? We hope to do this and avoid having to pay our baggage fee's twice. If we do have to retrieve our bags in LAX any chance AA would not charge us the next day?
We will have 1 carry on each that will serve as our overnight bag so we would prefer not having to retrieve our checked bags.
