Claiming Checked Bags

Claiming Checked Bags

    Good Afternoon Lucky & OMAAT Team,

    I’m a long time reader of your blog and check it daily for exciting trip reports and credit card offers! I have a family trip coming up this summer and had a couple questions about checked bags. We’re flying with Lufthansa, booked through United, from IAH to IAD (to re-position & separate itinerary ) for our next itinerary from IAD to LIS. How much time do you recommend to collect our bags from IAD airport for our next flight to LIS?

    Also, on the return we’re on 1 itinerary flying on United Airlines from LIS > IAD > BOS > IAH. Once arriving into IAD will we need to clear customs and collect our checked bags and recheck them before continuing the next leg? Or, can they be checked to the final destination from LIS to IAH? I just want to make sure we don’t run into any problems with not having enough time at the airport and missing our flight!

    I appreciate your help and look forward to your response!

    Thank you!
