BCN AA to Vueling

Hello all,

In April I'm moving to Menorca, Spain. My itinerary is DFW-JFK-BCN-MAH. The first two legs are AA and then switch to Vueling for the final leg. My big bag will check through to BCN but what happens next? I'm sure I'll have to collect it and go through customs. Does anyone know if Vueling only checks plane side or if I can check it before I get to the gate?

Thanks,

Mark

Is this separate tickets or booked as a single ticket?

Then you won't have to collect your luggage at BCN. It will go all the way to Mahón before you see it.

Just do Schengen immigration at Barcelona and get to the gate in time.

Thanks! I have a retirement visa so I'm hoping the passport bit will be smooth too.

Your entry shouldn't take any extra time. The complex bit will be getting the NIE with the police once you are in Menorca. If you don't speak Spanish/Catalan, I highly recommend bringing a friend who does to help out. But all of that is well outside the scope of this forum.
