Check in at Newark
Thanks in advance for answering the question!
So I am flying out of EWR (1:45 am departure) on Cathay Pacific business class, I get to EWR at 6:00 PM on a separate flight on Delta.
Old buddy from school lives in the city and wants to meet for dinner. I don’t want to have to drag my luggage with me.
The question is. Cathay’s check in counters don’t open until 9:15 PM (4.5 hours before departure per their website).
Is there anyway I can check my luggage at the American Airlines counter and it will get on my CX flight. Or can i only check in at the Cathay counter?
Cannot answer your question with AA checkin.
“[I]Baggage storage at the Newark Airport is available only at the NBS Storage and Delivery in Terminal C, located between Newark Airport baggage claim carousels No.1 and No.2. Newark Airport Baggage Storage is only available for Continental Airlines passengers, and a Continental ticket and ID are required when using the NBS Storage service.
Pricing: $16 per bag for bags over 60 lbs.; $10 per bag for the first bag under 60 lbs.; $5 for each additional bag under 60 lbs.
You can’t check your bags in with anyone other than Cathay.
However, Delta and Cathay do technically have an interline baggage agreement, so you [I]may[/I] be able to ask the Delta agent to check your bag through by showing both tickets. Delta isn’t known for accommodating this, but it could be worth asking.
