Luggage Check in on separate tickets CA to LH

Dear all

I like to see your expertise with luggage check-in with separate tickets.

I would be flying business class with CA from PEK to FRA that entitles me to 2 pieces of 32kg.

Thereafter, I have a separate economy ticket with LH from FRA - MUC that entitles me to 2 pieces of 23 kg (due to *A gold status).

Question now being, if I were to check in with 2 pieces of 32 kg with CA from PEK - FRA, will CA allow my luggages to be check through from FRA - MUC. My concern being, the luggage weight is exceeded between FRA - MUC.

Appreciate your views on this matter.

I was able to check baggage to the final destination without any problem (traveling on separate tickets from both FRA and CTU, the only time my request was rejected was in AKL).

I have never had an experience when my baggage was above allowance, though...

Your bigger challenge will be to first explain and then convince the CA checkin agent in PEK to check your luggage thru to MUC. Usually they are not eager to do such thing....

general issue is the counter, youíre original carrier can check you through within SA and the first ticket matters, unless you have a light fare for your connection

eg AC yyc to fra then LH to vce

​​​if itís a partner airline checkin letís say AirDomiti, local conpany, it doesnít work because they donít have access

I have had several similar itineraries and not once had an issue

I never had any trouble with checking luggage through, with separate ticket, before, even flying with different alliances.

But I usual travel within the lowest weight limit like TPJ. Henceforth, the question.
