I booked a flight from Ottawa (Canada) to Venice (Italy) but it has a transfer in Philadelphia, will I have to re-check my luggage in Philadelphia? The trip was booked through flighthub and though it appears to all be operated through American Airlines, the actual plane companies are different ones.

    Is the entire trip on a single ticket? In other words, if you look up the confirmation code on American's site, does it show the entire trip or just one of the segments? Apr 11, 2016 at 17:01

As Ottawa is on the list of pre-clearance airports you would have already passed American customs and immigration in Canada.

Judging from Flightaware you're flying with Air Wisconsin to Philadelphia, which has a partnership with American Airlines so that should mean...no need to recheck your bags ! :)
