Economy Light Through Check

I'm flying Air China from PEK-FRA and now need to go to London instead; I checked fares and it turns out booking a FRA-LHR OW on LH is far cheaper than changing my CA flight to LHR.

If I would like to through check my luggage from Beijing all the way to London, will I be able to check bags if I booked an economy light fare from FRA-LHR, or do I need to book a baggage inclusive fare.

The CA agent in PEK will not check thru your luggage to LH for separate tickets anyway.

These agents in PEK follow the book in strict terms!
They won't deviate or get creative for you.
