This question already has an answer here:
I am traveling to France. Booked trip through Delta. First leg is from home airport US, to JFK on Delta, second then is to France via Air France under Delta. So, when I arrive at JFK, will I have to retrieve and recheck my bags when I get to the international terminal or do they check it through to my final destination...and then coming home France to Detroit, Detroit to home airport. Thanks.
