    Hi all, I really appreciate your help here. I am traveling from New York to Hilo on 2/9/16, and here is my itinerary:

    (separate tickets, separate confirmation)

    1) UA ticket: EWR - HNL, arrive 3:30pm

    2) UA issued award ticket operated by HA: HNL - HILO, leave at 5pm

    I am under an impression that baggage can be interlined, but learnt yesterday there is a change in policy in March 2015!! If i have to re-check my bag at HNL, I don't think 1.5 hour is enough for me to do that given the lines etc..

    Can someone please share your knowledge if you have done this after march 2015? HA is not star alliance, and my reservation are on separate ticket. i am only hoping UA can help me given they ticketed both tickets.

    Thank you very much!!
