Condor flight check-in, seat selection, bag check, etc help?

Jump to last reply

Hi there, I booked a roundtrip flight through Condor - the price was excellent, but it's kinda confusing how things are being handled. The round-trip involves 3 separate flights there (each a different airline) and the same 3 flights/airlines on the return trip. The Condor website and info is sorta sparse and kinda confusing. I'm struggling to understand the check-in, seat selection, bag check and transfer of checked bag.

Here's the roundtrip info (Buffalo to Amsterdam):

Departure: 5/20/16
Leg 1) Jetblue - flight B61916 - BUF to BOS
Leg 2) Air Tanker (Thomas Cooke?) - fight MT2681 - BOS to MAN
Leg 3) FlyBE - flight BE1271 - MAN to AMS

Return is essentially the same flights in reverse order (FlyBE from AMS to MAN, Air Tanker/Thomas Cooke from MAN to BOS, and JetBlue from BOS to BUF.)

Kinda seems like I need to check in for all 3 places. I'm guessing I am supposed to check-in right on JetBlue's​ site for Leg 1, right on the Condor website (who seems to essentially be the same thing as Thomas Cooke?) for Leg 2, and FlyBE's website for Leg 3. Then again, I could be way off.

I assume when I get to the airport I'll go to the JetBlue bag check to check my suitcase, but I'm not certain because I believe Condor might also have their own bag check-in... so again, I'm sorta lost.

I'm going to try to print my tickets ahead of time, so I think I'll already have all of those, but that leads me to my next question: it doesn't seem like I have seats selected yet on the flights and check-in is usually like 24 hours before the flight... do I select (or get assigned) seats at that time, or is there another step? Or are these airlines using the Southwest model where you board and just find open seats?

I'm also not entirely confident that my checked bag will be automatically transferred from airline to airline, or if I'll need to go retrieve it and check it sequentially for each leg.

Also, can someone tell me when I'll be going through customs or immigration or whatever? Obviously they force me to go through customs when necessary, but I'd like to know when that will be just to have an understanding of what I'm doing.

Can someone help me figure all this stuff out for sure, please?
