Interline Transfer JAL-ANA

I am flying GMP-HND-FRA, the first flight being on JL, the second NH, both in business, on separate tickets. I have 65 min at Haneda.... will JAL at Seoul Gimpo check my bags through to Frankfurt?

I am pretty sure that JAL and ANA have an interline agreement, but have never tried so.

I can't say I have tried. Generally JAL is very supportive at making things work. Though this may be pushing it a bit.

Having an interline agreement does not mean an airline is willing to check through luggage across two separate tickets. Within the alliance JAL does it, outside the alliance,, not sure.

I am fairly sure they would if you come as a JMB Diamond. But not sure in all cases.

Having an interline agreement is the first question. If JL does not, then it does not matter what kind of customer service it provides. If it does, then the inquiry continues. Easiest to simply call JL and be certain to expressly point out the 65 minutes and separate tickets.

Thank you very much everyone.
Called JAL and they said No.
But thats the reason I asked the question- I am not 100% sure the answer is correct. Depending on the check-in agent, they might go the extra mile. But since check-in at GMP is mostly handled by KE I guess I better travel with carry-on this time.

The policy is through check to other oneworld airlines So the official answer when calling will always be no. That will always be based on the written rules.

In many cases they can handle it, especially for status members. But you are probably right, an out station it is less certain to happen. This is one I have not tested. So I don't know for sure what they will do.

I would say yes, but it is not automatic. you have to make your case.
Please carry the ANA e-ticket print out with you, and also show you have completed online check-in.

JL and NH are both on Amadeus Altea DCS.

Technically, it can be done very easily.

Just tell the agent to use the "Add Itinerary" function.

I am planning to buy a ticket for my wife that just doesnt price on single PNR so I will do JAL HAN-NRT and ANA NRT-MEX, doing both as business redemptions. Do you think interline is possible?

Theoretically possible, whether the staff at HAN are capable or allowed to do it is an open question. If your wife travels without checked luggage it is possible to do an airside transfer even if not having the boarding pass. If you ask JAL in advance, the answer will be no, as it is not part of the stated services, but at a system level it is possible.

If it is an itinerary under the current conditions, be aware that a land side transit is not possible, as that would mean entering Japan, and foreigners who have stayed in Vietnam within 14 days are not allowed to enter Japan.
