In fact, are there any pairs/sets of airports within one metropolitan area in which checked bags on one ticket are routinely transferred by an airline? I know it doesn't happen in the NYC airports, and both BA and Air France explicitly specify the passenger has to transport their own checked bags if there's a change of airport (LHR/LGW or CDG/ORY), but I don't know if this normally happens anywhere else in the world.

I would have thought it was a general rule that the passenger always have to transfer their own checked bags if there's a change of airport, but I've learned on this board that my assumptions are often wrong (!) so I'm curious.
