Yes, we are talking about two different services. No one is suggesting combining any services. I am suggesting the OP try to use the Air Sea service to (i) check in for his onward flight which occurs the next day, and (ii) use it as a way to get to Hong Kong airport from which he can take the Airport Express train into Central. This would, IMO, be just as easy -- if not easier -- than using Express Link or the Cotai Jet ferry service from Macau to Central. As he would also be able to check in for his onward flight which is taking off the next day from Hong Kong Airport, this would save him even more time and resolve the luggage issue.

The thing I don't know is whether the OP can use the Air Sea service to check in for a flight out of Hong Kong which is not the "same day" as his arrival into Macau. The website is not clear on what "same day flight" means. My point is that there is no harm in asking. If he is allowed to do this, he can get his boarding pass and check his big luggage in. This will save him a good bit of time the next day at Hong Kong airport.

As I have never used the Air Sea service, and I don't think any poster on this board has either, it is just an unknown as to whether it can be used to check-in for flights occuring a calendar day after arrival.

If will find out within moments of landing whether he can do this. If he can't do this, then he can use Express Link or Cotaijet to get by ferry, wtih all his baggage, to Central in Hong Kong.
