Checked-in Luggage Using Different Airlines

Jump to last reply

I did not know this routine existed until recently, so maybe it may be of interest to other folks.
Last week, I travelled from Frankfurt to Hong Kong via Doha on Qatar Airlines. From Hong Kong, I flew on to Melbourne with Cathay Pacific. In a further complication, the Qatar fligghts were in Business Class, and the Cathay in Economy. At Frankfurt, I asked the person at the Qatar counter if I could check my luggage right through to Melbourne. She said I could as long as I had an on-line boarding pass for the Cathay flight, which I did. She then issued me with a baggage check that indicated that the bag was headed for Melbourne.
At Hong Kong, I was able to use the transfer procedure to access the Cathay flight rather than go through Immigration, collect my luggage, and then check-in, as I had done on previous trips. At Melbourne the bag appeared on the carousel as intended.
As I said above, I was not aware that this level of co-operation existed between airlines, and therefore it may be news to others. Certainly it made the logistics of a long trip much easier.
