Despite the policy some travellers have succeeded in having bags interlined. But do not rely on baggage being interlined

I'm not sure of the answer I'm afraid. I would think BA could do it, but whether they would is another matter.

Can you not check-in online for the MH flight, perhaps with the app, or printing a boarding pass from a PC before you board the BA flight?

I have two separate PNRs of HKG-MAD (CX stock ticket) and MAD-GRX (IB stock).

Based on new oneworld policy, I need to pick up and re-check my bag at MAD.
That's not comfortable, but I can accept it.

My concern is about misconnect.
I have 3 hours layover at MAD but HKG-MAD flight delayed so bad (over 3 hours) three times only in July.
What happens if my flight delays and fail to catch MAD-GRX flight?
My MAD-GRX will be canceled as no-show or Iberia change my light to later one?

I also know about global support. What can they offer me?

Technically, you'll be on your own, and at the mercy of IB to allow any rebooking.

Basically, nothing. You won't be registered as being through checked - connecting from one partner to another. Global Support only monitor, and support, actual ticketed connections.

Sorry.

Thank you for comment^

All I can do is just pray for mercy of IB with many flights between MAD-GRX and on-time operation of CX.

I hope MAD allows Sapphire holder to use fast-track immigration.

One World at LHR

One World is spread over T3, T4 and T5 at Heathrow. I'm flying out of LHR on MH (from T4) next month, but will have to connect on a different ticket (my plans are being finalized) most likely from AMS. Given that KLM use T4 I'd choose them to make my connection easier. Previously I'd have used BA. It really isn't a well thought out Alliance any more....

Or perhaps this is just a move to ameliorate the problems of expanding Heathrow. Given BA's dominance, and One World's reluctance to help travellers make connections, perhaps people will start using airports which are hubs of Star Alliance and/or Sky Team to make their connections in Europe. LH and its subsidiaries are the obvious beneficiaries.

Except that *A and *S have similar policies, at the alliance level at least. Some member airlines match the alliance policy while others do more than the alliance policy, just like in oneworld.

Partly it's the uncertainty. If the policy is no through checking, then it's nice when an airline does, but you can't plan and rely on it to do so. Have to allow more time to go through immigration etc.
Perhaps there's a use for travel agents again.

I will be flying QR Bos - DOH then UL DOH-CMB on one ticket, followed by UL CMB-SIN on a separate ticket. Will QR check through my luggage to SIN?

No. QR won't even check though to itself on separate tickets.

No, they won't. (at least for now, even BA changed their minds about that)
