I don't plan to get a hotel in NYC -- just head to Manhattan for few hrs, and back to the airport by 5 or 6 am. I'd rather not have my bags in NYC, of course.

Do I just explain all this at check-in in SFO? I assume it shouldn't be a problem. I have AS status, and the JL ticket is in business class so I have plenty of baggage allowance.
You shouldn’t have any issue through-checking. It meets the 12 hr baggage requirement for international.

I’ve done similar illogical routings with checked bags and usually you just get a comment from the agent asking if you are crazy
