Luggage nightmare LA+DL

Same problem here. Flying GRU-JFK with LATAM and JFK-DCA with DL with a very short connection. 2 separate PNR.

Delta Diamond desk told me before the flight that my luggage may be checked to the final, DCA. “Just show them your second ticket, they will add it manually”… Was told I need to go thru the customs in JFK, but DCA MAY be on the tag and it will make the things faster.

In the airport in Sao Paulo now. Its a nightmare. No one understands the issue, no one is willing to help. Argued for 30 minutes and was denied to check the bag to DCA, told that they don’t see my next flight in their system (of course they don’t) - and will not add any destination manually. 🤯

Any other experience? Any one was more lucky then me?
