Like most Americans traveling to Europe, we have to take a domestic flight before starting the trans-atlantic flight.
Do we have to claim our luggage and have it re-screened in the international terminal, or are they just forwarded on by the airline?
We've got a 6 hour layover in Philadelphia (USAirways) and wonder if we'll be dragging our bags around for that whole time.
As others have said, your luggage will be booked through to your final destination. That is presuming your domestic flight is booked on the same ticket/itinerary as your international flight.
