So I would never be on separate tickets with same day travel unless you had a long transit between the two flights and who wants a long transit?! Not me, that's for sure - especially at LAX
i don't mean to hijack this thread, but did you find that your flights were more expensive when flying direct through to orlando? my TA quoted me approx $1200 for the bne - mco flight, but we could get bne - lax return for 1200 and then our lax - mco return for approx 350. much cheaper than bne - mco 1200 and mco - lax 285 and lax - bne 1100...

maybe there was something i or my TA had missed

Sorry I didn't even check the price of doing it separately as I knew I wanted to go WLG-AKL-LAX-MCO in one go. We couldn't leave any earlier than 29 Sep and that was the last day to check-in to POR to quality for free dining so HAD to get there!!

Mix of non-partner airlines? Fixed dates? There are so many thing that can push fares up.

(Also your baggage allowance will included as per you international ticket)
Been there, done that!

United into LA, on time, sailed through immigration, got connecting flight to ORD, it sat on the tarmac to AGES, arrived in Chicago 30min late, (not helped by someone that refused to site down once we actually landed while the plane was taxing around, so we had to STOP), finally got to the terminal with 15min to get to next flight, which was as far away from the gate we landed at as you could get, got to next gate with 3min to spare but they had already closed the gate. Went back to United, was given a night at the airport Hilton I think it was plus meal vouchers for dinner and breakfast, got flight next morning. If any of those flights had been ticketed separately, it would've all been at our expense, which would've been ok claiming through travel insurance, but only had to claim the first night in Miami.

Another trip, I had SYD-Vegas-MCO-SYD. Friends had return London-Vegas, decided to change to LON-Vegas-MCO-LON, Virgin Atlantic didn't do Vegas-MCO, they got a separate ticket, got hit with baggage fees, something like $50 each, no baggage fee for me on the international ticket.
