Can I combine a ticket for a JAL flight and Vistara flight?

I am looking at a mileage ticket from DEL-MSY on Japan Airlines, getting it at a saver level. Problem is that I am actually flying out of AMD but can get a 1 way ticket on Vistara from AMD-DEL. I know that when you fly on separate tickets that you are SOL if something happens to your flight and in regards to bags, they won't let you check through the whole way. But Vistara is a codeshare partner with JAL so in theory this could be combined as a single ticket? Has anyone done this before? Don't wanna pull the trigger until I know it can be done and the AMD-MSY mileage ticket is unavailable

You can't combine a revenue and an award booking in one ticket. So if there are no award seats available on Vistara, your only option is two tickets. Or of course, revenue all the way.

Vistara is not a FFP partner. Even if they were, can you combine Vistara, JL, and AA?

codesharing has nothing to do with FFP partnership Look at JL and CI

It does to a certain extend, in as much as JMB members can accrue miles once the JL code appears on the Vistara flight. They would need to book under the code though.
