Interline Baggage Agreement

Does AA have interline baggage agreement with Lufthansa? I will be traveling CCU-FRA-DFW. The segment between CCU-FRA is operated by LH. The flight between FRA-DFW is by AA. I bought this ticket via Orbitz. Do I have to collect my luggage at FRA?

Good question... google doesn't turn up anything useful. (Actually, it turns up this post )

The wiki claims that AA can check bags to LH, but I don't know if that works in reverse or not. Here's the link:

Yes they do interline with LH. Done it both ways from AA to LH and the reverse many times. Bags made it every time. Will need a copy of both itineraries at check-in. They can't check you in for the other flight segment.

No need to collect bags at FRA; they're checked through

Done it both ways at FRA -- TATL from ORD, then on to PRG, back from BUD.

Only issue was that our bags were the absolute last ones offloaded at ORD, despite being in J and the LH "Priority" tags.
