Not sure if this is the right thread, but I figured I would give it a try. Going to be heading out on a trip to ADD in the following few months and had a few questions with regards to interlining in IAD. Trip looks like this so far: LAS-IAD-ADD (I am flying UA to IAD and then ET to ADD) -Will United check my bags through to ADD for me? Or will I have to collect them at IAD and recheck them with ET to ADD? -With regards to lounge access, I know that ET is on the books to join Star Alliance by Sept '11. Is their any chance I can score lounge access at IAD as I am Star Gold? Or am I pretty much SOL? -Does anyone have any experience with interlining between these two airlines before? If so, how did it go? -Will UA stick the others in my party with baggage fees? As we are only flying UA domestic before continuing on to ET. Granted it will be bought all as one ticket via Orbitz.com or something like that. Thanks!
