I am flying from Charlotte NC to Copenhagen via Dulles IAD. When my American Airlines flight arrives in Dulles will I have to claim my bag and take and recheck to SAS? If I gook the flights using Expedia I think they are on the same reservation? But I don't think AA and SAS are partner airlines so not sure if AA in Charlotte can check my bag through to Copenhagen or if I have to claim it and recheck it?
If they are on the same reservation then American should be able to check your bag through to Copenhagen and issue your SAS boarding pass. If they check your bag through but can't issue the boarding pass you can go directly to the SAS gate and get it there.
I am traveling from Buffalo to Copenhagen in June on United Express and SAS. I have 2 hours layover in Dulles. Sounds like enough time, but will I have to claim and recheck baggage between the flights (and hence go through security in Dulles)? Thanks
If both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

You don't have to do anything with your bags in DC on your way to Munich. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Aerotrain and mobile lounges connect the concourses inside security.
Hi, my husband and i have a united flight from houston to dulles this week with a 36 minute connection before flying out to Munich. Is this enough time? Are the bags going to make it on? Any advice is appreciated
That is enough time if the flight from Houston is on-time but obviously leaves no time to spare.
