I arrive LGA at 1:40 pm on a Monday and depart EWR on BA at 6:25 pm. I am flying on an AA FC award ticket. I assume that I will have to get my bags at LGA and recheck them at EWR. Is this correct? When must I arrive EWR to have time to check bags? If I land on time, is it reasonable to think I can get my checked bags within 30 minutes of landing? Do I have enough time if I book a car service for 2:10 pm to safely make my 6:25 pm connection? What if I miss it? BTW I tried to get to NYC the day before but no tickets award tickets were available and this is for next May!!! My flight options to NYC are all on American Eagle.
