Looks like you're new here. Biz class on the short run is economy class, same seat. Waste of miles.
Worth the extra 5k for baggage, blocked middle seat, priority check-in, and amenity kit.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I booked 2 business tickets tlv-bru and bru-jfk seperate tickets with 1 hour in between
Called etihad and Brussels airlines both told me they won't check my luggage for Jfk in tlv,
How can i be relaxed about that? What if the agent at tlv counter doesn't know either about it?
Thanks
Dropr
I would be more worried about the hour stopover there can be delays

They will do it at the gate no problem

There is no guarantee! I have been denied that request before. They have no obligation to check your bags through on separate PNR's and every right to say no.

The discourteous and crass response that is slowly turning DDF into a cesspool of hostility.

That's the way you understood it.

The guy asked how he can be sure that they will check his bag through and my response was that there is no way to ensure that. He bought the trip as 2 separate tickets in order to save miles and the trade-off is that he may have to recheck his bag. BTW I have done the same thing in the past and had to recheck and even tough it was annoying, I accepted it as the cost of saving those miles.

I hope that in chaim0m's case things work out and he will be spared the annoyance and enjoy a safe and pleasant flight.

I have done it on this exact flight both from jfk, and leaving tlv without an issue.
Is there ever a guarantee to anything?

They have no obligation but no problem for doing so either, so why they will refuse?
Especially in business class they will be more likely to help..

No
So would have to hope there are no delays and won't miss the connection.

How does that prove they support BDS? They got requests to stop buying a product, stopped buying it without understanding the full controversy and then reinstated the product. 
that's not what it seems like. They pulled back because if pressure. But they still support bds.
 And using miles isn't free. It's a paid ticket.
