When you say "direct" I think you mean "non-stop" In the airline business 'direct" can include a stop en-route.

If you get tickets to Switzerland with a stop in Frankfurt, the bags will go through to Switzerland without needing to be picked up and re-checked. If you buy two separate tickets then you (she) might need to re-check the bags in FRA.

Also, i agree with what Katja posted.
