Bag fees with partial itn in F

Taking some time off this summer to head to SXM and SJO (SXM in May and SJO in June). I haven't had to think about this until now, but with the new 1 bag US Silver rules now i have to get creative. I would like to take my golf clubs down with me but that leaves me with just a carry on. I'm originiating in JAX where upgrades are always easy. So I am wondering if I am upgraded from JAX-CLT, will I be allowed 2 free bags all the way to SXM and SJO (assuming I don't get upgraded on those since they are both considered domestic F eligible for elite upgrade)? I assume you can chec both, but figured I would double check before I start stuffing bathing suits in my golf bag. Thanks

My trips start or end on a turboprop with no F cabin. I've had no problems checking a 2nd bag as a silver for free when I'm connecting to or from an upgraded leg.

Yea that sounds about right.

The lawyer in me has me wondering though if you got the 2nd bag because there was no F option on your flight? I'm going to stick my neck out and assume it will be fine to check 2 bags but if anybody who has done this on the mainline would like to chime in, I'm all ears. Thanks

Works Fine

I've done this quite a few times, LAX/PHX is a hard UG, but PHX/ORD I generally make. Never an issue checking 2 bags at LAX or ORD. In ORD once they've asked to see my boarding pass if I use self checkin.
