My next trip is with Lufthansa to Frankfurt, connecting to a Condor flight to Holguin, Cuba. My outbound journey involves an overnight layout in Frankfurt, while my return trip has a 3 hour connection time in Frankfurt.

Lufthansa and Condor both participate in the Miles & More frequent flyer programme and, according to this item https://onemileatatime.com/lufthansa-condor-takeover/ also have an interline agreement. When making this trip for the first time recently, I assumed that I would not be able to check my luggage through to my final destination because the flights were booked as two separate tickets, and therefore I did not even bother to ask when checking in for my return flight. However, now that I know about the links between the two airlines, I’m wondering if it might be possible.

Question: does anyone know if Condor would through-check baggage in this scenario? Is it even worth asking at the check-in desk?

    I would call them. They might do that. I have managed to get Swiss (a LH company) to through check on to a TAP flight. But i did call first. Jan 10 '20 at 15:35
  • They definitely do that for a single booking (personal experience). But I'm not sure they can arrange this if you fly on different bookings.

Answering my own question, on my return flight I asked to check my bag through to my final destination, but was told it couldn’t be done.
