There are no *A rules re through checking bags on separate tickets.

UA voluntarily has its policy to through check bags to separately ticketed *A flights. But thats not a * rule and theres no guarantee that other airlines will do the same, even to UA. IIRC NZ refuses to through check to separately ticketed Star Flights, and (while they existed) BMI certainly didnt.

Its very possible that SQ will do the same (BR did it for me) which would save the OP having to queue up at UA check in, but buyer beware.
