Although Air Italy confirmed the Interline agreement and shared details of the partnership, Alaska Airlines has not officially confirmed that it is in the end.

Alaska Airlines is the latest airline to join the train to implement a policy of no longer „breaking” passengers` luggage when they were charged from January 15, 2013 from January 15, 2013 with a ticket on separate airline tickets. As we reported here on The Gate, US Airways and Delta Air Lines – as well as Hawaiian Airlines have implemented similar guidelines or have plans on this. As has been the case, some FlyerTalk members are disappointed, frustrated and dissatisfied with this policy – and it is inevitable that other airlines will follow. Meanwhile, some flyerTalk members have written to their elected representatives about the impact that the provisions of the U.S. Department of Transportation, adopted in August 2011 and which represent the source of this problem for some FlyerTalk members, have on airlines and their passengers. However, other FlyerTalk members believe that guidelines like this, announced by Alaska Airlines, are nothing more than a „cash grave” for airlines. This is the following provision – which is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation`s improvement in air passenger protection – which, according to some reports, is at the root of the airline`s interline baggage policies: I am a little confused. Suppose I fly from Tampa to Seoul via Atlanta. TPA at ATL is on Delta, ATL at ICN is on Korean Air. There is a ticket and an itinerary, as both sky are airlines and they were purchased at the same time as an itinerary.
Does this mean I should claim my bag in Atlanta and check for the next step? We understand that you will sometimes have to book different parts of your trip on different airlines with separate tickets. If this happens, we cannot ensure that there is sufficient login time to transfer your luggage to your next flight. This leads to poorly connected pockets, which is not good for anyone. We will travel to Fairbanks, AK in June, and we will arrive in Seattle, WA with United Airlines and continue with Alaska Airlines to Fairbanks. Do the two airlines have an interline agreement or do we have to use our luggage and check it again? The reality is that airlines are doing their customers a favour by distributing luggage on separate tickets. They are not obliged to do so if they are booked separately, as it creates an increased responsibility for them if the bag is missing.
