JAL interlining bags on Cathay Dragon?

I am planning an itinerary from NRT-PVG and then a separate booking of PVG-HKG on Cathay Dragon (2 hour layover in PVG). Would JAL allow me to check my bag through to Hong Kong? Cathay Dragon isnít a full Oneworld member so not sure if they would or not.
thanks!

Yes.. They will interline bags and will even print your onward boarding pass if you ask. There is no problem at all. Ask and you will be given.

except at PVG you are required to go through immigration and customs then re-check-in for international connection.

Yeah, PVG is highly annoying that way.

There are a few airlines allowed to check luggage through, as far as I know, it is only LX, VS, NZ, and LH . Other passengers have to reclaim luggage.

JL, CX, and HX all fly NRT-HKG fyi. I would never deliberately connect in Shanghai (or anywhere else in the mainland).
