Does your luggage always/ generally take the same route as you?

Yes. Unless it gets delayed

I would think yes but assume its up to the check in agent in ORD to do it.
Bags never transfer between airports!
If itís the same airport, you can usually get them to check it through.

If both flights are with the same airline they wouldn't agree to send the bags on a separate flight?

No, for security reasons.

Thereís the old joke of the guy checking in to JFK asking the agent if they could send one bag to Paris and the other to Miami. The agent declines saying policy doesnít allow that, to which he responds, but thats where my bags ended up last time!

Jokes aside, i guess initially they put you with your bombs unless the bags get rerouted. I thought on occasion bags can end up on an earlier flight etc.

So I had booked an El-Al flight for my son's gap year (don't worry, I've sinced rebooked him on Delta), and ELAL canceled it today. Here is the weird part, if I log into their site, they only seemed to have canceled the outgoing leg (i.e. NYC-TLV) and not the return flight - can they do that?

They will cancel the return leg closer to time
