Overnight layover & checked bag

Jump to last reply

I want to be able to check a bag on an international flight, but I have an overnight layover. I am getting conflicting information from call center agents (the airline is not a US-based one; I don't know where the call center reps are).

I have been told, by different call center agents,

- You MUST check your bag all the way through to your final destination; you cannot check it to your layover destination

- You can't check it to your layover destination, but they will let you retrieve any items you need from it before you go through immigration (I find that hard to believe)

- It's up to the airport agent who checks you in; maybe they'll let you, maybe they won't

Any recent experiences with this? The most recent thread I found on it is from 2011:

By the way, this is for a flight leaving from Kuala Lumpur—so I can't call the airport to ask the check-in desk (or at least not very easily).

Thanks!
