Dear all, I'm going to fly from Dallas to Milan qith AA with a stop-over in Madrid. What should i do with my baggage? They will be shipped directly in Milan or should i recheck themi n Madrid? Thank you!
If your bags are properly tagged with all three airport codes, they will arrive automatically in Milan, since you only use one airline.
However, since you arrive in the EU in Madrid, you will have to claim them in immigration there and then drop them at re-check. It's not that complicated.
