OK so I have upcoming travel:

PHL -> LAX on an AA reservation/itin, 6 hour layover in LAX then LAX -> MEL, 12 hour layover then MEL -> AKL...so are folks in agreement that if I check my bag at PHL it should get checked all the way to AKL? Will I have to pick it up in SYD and recheck after customs?

(Amended 11:43) I think you're most likely going to be able to check all the way through to AKL:

- one booking PHX-LAX-MEL-AKL: definitely
- separate ticket for MEL-AKL or LAX-MEL-AKL: should still be able to, since AA is still checking through to partners and QF allows check through between its own flights even in separate PNRs.

(Assuming you mean MEL not SYD) No recheck.

Note you probably need an ETA for Australia because the TWOV exemption is 8 hours (unless you're an Australian or New Zealander). I see you've asked the question in another thread in this forum http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/qanta...l#post26870912

My forthcoming travel is in October. Classic points award ticket on QF to LHR, followed by a separate paid booking for travel onwards to the continent with BA. Not able to be on the same ticket as no award availability on the BA flight. All booked and ticketed before the changes were announced.

On the forward journey, the scheduled arrival at LHR is at 2.15pm. The onward journey on BA is a departure at 5.40pm. That's a little over 3 hours (assuming no delayed arrival). I think that should be enough time to clear immigration, collect bags and head over to T5. What do others think?

I've never had to make a non-interlined connection of this kind before at LHR, so I am afraid I don't have a sense of whether I will have enough time to make the connection.

(Return is no problem as there is an overnight stop in London).

QF does provide online (ie, QF to QF) through check of bags when on separate tix.

QF should be able to tag your bags the whole way through with that one.

Exceptions apply in the following circumstances:
  • The separate ticket is a Qantas or Emirates booking;
  • Customers are travelling on oneworld separate PNRs, using a combination of award travel and revenue travel. These customers may be through checked and their baggage interlined as it is not possible to make both of these reservations in one PNR.

Quite ridiculous that is the reason given for this exception. What about the other circumstances where it's not possible to book in one PNR such as a work trip happening immediately before or after personal travel?

So I think it's a revenue management initiative...

Many thanks. QF did indeed interline our bags on those sectors. There was no issue or mention of it at check in, other than "here are your luggage receipts with your bags checked through to GVA".

Just to piggyback on this thread.....

I'm flying QF J SYD-ADL and then QR J ADL-DOH on two separate PNR's.

What are my chances of finding a nice QF agent to tag my bag all the way from SYD to DOH? Do they seem to be accommodating at through checking bags on separate OneWorld PNR's?

Very unliklley. QF's policy is not to check through. Expect to collect bags and check back in again. Fortunately Adelaide is a really easy airport for such flights with it all being in 1 terminal
