Hi all! I and a buddy are headed to the Philippines for a dive trip in a few weeks and we're trying to plan our lay over at LAX. I'm on a AA rewards ticket with a route of BMI (Bloomington IL) to ORD to LAX. At LAX we have a 6.5 hour layover before out flight to Manila on Philippians Air (then on to Dumaguete [DGT] on Cebu Pacific) . The question, do you think it's possible to check our bags in BMI though to MNL? I'm not to worried about hte MNL to DGT leg. The tickets are not linked, the PAL ticket was is a group booking (the trip is a package out of LA). The gist of this is that we each have passes to the Admirals Club in Terminal 4 (domestic). The PAL flight is out of the International Terminal though and we're wondering if we do need to collect our bags in LA, if we can check them over at PAL and get back to the Admirals Club in Term. 4? If we can check though to MNL I don't think there is a problem. It looks like we currently have to leave the secured area to get to the international terminal. Thanks for any tips!
