Will I be able to have bags checked all the way when connecting in Doha from a BA flight to a Qatar Airways flight, despite being separate award bookings? Although the second leg is booked using Velocity points, at least Qatar Airways is a One World alliance partner, so I’m hoping not too much of an issue when checking in at Heathrow.
I guess the only issue is that I may be exposed if the BA flight is late or cancelled causing me to miss the connection. I suppose they will argue they are not responsible if I did not book the addtitional leg through them. Hopefully travel insurance will cover any eventualities.
Thoughts? Is this a safe scenario?
