Checking in on two separate airlines for the same day of travel question

Jump to last reply

When checking in for an international flight I decline the print the boarding pass at home as I need to scan my passport at the airline self check in kiosk anyways. Has this changed or is it still the same? Why I ask…

I purchased two separate tickets on two separate airlines to get me to destination B. Both airlines are represented at destination A, my departure point. Continental for my domestic flight, American Airlines for my international flight.

Can I now check in for international flights online with the new security details when booking flights and proceed thru security with no swiping/scanning a passport at the airport?

If the answer is NO, can I check in for my international flight using the American Airlines kiosk at my home airport (departing on Continental) for my departure flight later that day?

The reason I’m asking, I will be making the change at Miami. I will have no check in luggage and as the terminal maps show, I can easily walk from Continental gates to AA gates without having to go back thru security. No big deal if I had to make a terminal change. It's one less thing to deal with.

I tried calling American and I get, ‘I guess.’
