My husband and I are flying out on September 2nd from Kansas City, but have an overnight layover in Dallas before continuing on September 3rd to Miami and then Montego Bay. My question is, has anyone else ever had an overnight layover, and if so, do they check your bags straight through, or do you have to pick them up at baggage claim where you stay for the night and recheck them the next morning. Just curious. I've looked on American Airlines website for info about this, and haven't found much of anything, and in the past I haven't gotten much help from their customer service so I haven't called to ask yet.
