    The carrier delivering you to the final destination is where you file the claim and who you interact with. In your case that sounds like United.

    Hope your bags show up soon.

    Indeed, the last carrier to transport you is responsible for the baggage per the Warsaw/Montreal Conventions.

    But keep in mind that does not mean that the last carrier (in this case UA) will not try to pass you on to the prior carrier (US.) You may need to be persistent.

    Of course but the last airline is responsible... not that they would try to pass the buck... I had a
    CO->US->UA->CO itinerary a while ago...US mishandled the bags but CO was still on the hook.

    No offense but if you intentionally short-checked your bags to DEN instead of all the way to BKK to retag them or recheck it I find you not to be a moron or an idiot but you did make a boneheaded move if you're going to blame an airline for what happened... You messed up and now the airlines have to play clean up and fix your mistake...

    I don't think UA or anyone should be held liable for your screw-up, UA will try to get your bag reunited with you in BKK but you should have known better if you're a so called COPA 1MMer...

    First of all was not me . second of all if is problem to deal with 2 airlines and bags I guess 4 is too much like I always say the less time a airline takes my bags the better.
    So in your thinking if he had check them to BKK they would have not been lost please if they did make it to DEN they would have never made it with him to BKK.
    He will deal with UAL when he gets back tomorrow

    So I guess that UAL has a magical tunnel to BKK that would have saved his bags from getting lost in the first portion if they don't get to point B how can they get to C

    Dude... Your first ORIGINAL post here was...

    You used the words I and my which implies first person sense as in YOU are the person affected...

    Now you posted ...

    I - HE , HIS, HE, which implies you're talking about someone else on the same topic...

    Oh now you're telling us that you're not talking about what happened to you but someone else...

    If English is not your first language, I can understand the difficulties in comprehending the use of the first, second, third person syntax but so far your story has not matched up which is a major thumbs down for me.
