TN (Air Tahiti Nui)->QR on same ticket

Hello to the experts.
i have a flight PPT-AKL-DOH... then a 16-hour connection to FRA. All on one ticket- AA award in J.
Neither airline will let me check in online.

First question- do you think the airport will be able to handle this? Or make me recheck in AKL?

Second question: When trying to check in, both airlines show my itinerary as PPT-AKL-DOH. Does that mean can short my bag to DOH? I read through all the forums and itís unclear. Seems QR fare rules force bags to be checked all the way to the final destination if the stopover has is under 24 hours. But my ticket was issued by AA. Confused...

Thanks immensely.

To update... QR will NOT allow you to short check bags. If under 24 hours you have to check them to your final destination. So pack a carryon.
