Third level - check-in SCL.

Made it, no problem, but the baggage check girl started to give me a hard time over two cans of shaving cream (aerosols, yes?) , then turned me loose because the flight to PMC was already boarding. (Last in line: everyone else's bags went to carousel #3, mine went to #5. Why ask why...)

But did they actually have the tag to PMC at origin?

And if so, was there a dedicated bag drop line at SCL third level after you cleared immigrations and customs?

Did you print your boarding passes for SCL-PMC before you left the Empire?

Yes to all three. The bag drop-off line starts in the same place as the check in line, but got it sorted. Should save time on future trips.If I'd had to go through the check in line, I'd definitely have missed the connecting flight.
Thanks for the tips!
