Credit Cards Through-check on QR/BA/AA

    This is a long question, and many thanks to the person who answers it! :)

    I am travelling from BAH-DOH on QR and then DOH-LHR-DFW on BA (DOH-LHR) and AA (LHR-DFW), on separate tickets. Ironically, the BA flight from DOH-LHR stops in BAH, but the fare from BAH was 2x more expensive, so I chose DOH instead.

    I have a 4 hours in Doha between my QR and BA flights. I don't want to go through the hassle of immigration/bag claim, so I'm wondering if the QR check-in agents in Bahrain will be able to check my bags through to Dallas, despite the fact that they're on separate tickets. If so, can I (reasonably) expect my bags to arrive in Dallas? Personally, what has been your success rate in checking bags through on separate oneworld tickets?

    Finally, I doubt the QR staff will be able to issue my BA boarding pass in Bahrain, but I don't think there is a BA transit desk in Doha, either. What do I do about this?

    Thank you, thank you!!!
