I was just about to ask, what is everyone’s experience in terms of getting luggage through checked when connecting from a OneWorld to another OneWorld airline but on two separate tickets? stevescoots has already mentioned an issue above.
My only experience was connecting from CX to BA on the same ticket, and accidentally found out when we arrived in Hong Kong that they needed to scan in our luggage tags, in order to make sure our luggage got loaded onto the BA flight. We already had boarding passes for the onward flight, but thought we’d drop in at the connections desk just to check that things were in order, and that’s where we found out. Could that have meant that our luggage would not have made it to London, I wonder?!
