Question Checking a bag with EK at DL

This is a follow up to an earlier thread on the EK forum http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/showt...656&highlight=


I am booked ATL-DXB on DL and then DXB-PEK on EK it's an 8 hour layover in Dubai. The information I was provided on the EK forum was that Delta would be able to check the bag to PEK. Is this a sure fire way to have our bags lost when we arrive in PEK?

DL & EK's checked baggage policy is different on each carrier. If I check the bag with DL to PEK will EK baggage policy be followed?

Thanks for all your help!!!

All Airlines use the same baggage routing coding standard. It really doesn't make a difference whether you are connecting DL->DL or DL->EK. As long as you are not connecting in LHR or CDG your luggage is safe.
As for the checked baggage policy: I would assume the rules of the airline that recives the luggage will apply (i.e. DL flying to PEK, EK on the return).
