KA check-in at LHR on AY?

I am flying AY from LHR to HKG then onwards on KA to CRK on a separate redemption ticket. Given that both airlines are oneworld will I be able to check in the KA leg at LHR? Similarly on the return, can I check in to LHR at CRK?

On return, yes, not sure about outbound.

AY should be able to issue your BP for HKG-CRK. However, they don't check bags through AFAIK, so beware of that.

AY will not check luggage through...think they are yet to read this part of the oneworld website: 'At oneworld®, our member airlines work together across the network to ensure the seamless and efficient transfer of your luggage.' Please give them feedback.

Oh well, I'm sure i will enjoy the immigration/baggage/checkin/immigration experience, if nothing else it will keep me out of the bar for an hour or two. I might give AY a bit of feedforward contact to check on their own interpretation of seamless, guess that bit works only on one ticket.

As OP is checking in at AY, the policy is determined by AY. Moving thread to the AY Forum.

As for the first question: Probably not.
Finnair has a policy of not doing check-in to final destination on separate tickets unless both tickets are on AY. Both flights need to be operated and marketed AY and on 105-stock.

For the return, it will likely work as KA /CX do check to final on separate tickets. (But that is a question for the experts on the CX board.)
