The wife and I are travelling to Bangkok from Melbourne in a few weeks. Flying with Emirates. We fly an EK plane from Mel to Changi, and spend about 7 hrs in transit, and afterwards flying on a code-share Jetstar Asia flight from Singapore to Bangkok.
I’ve called Emirates to see if they are able to check us in up-to our final destination (BKK) from Melbourne. To my surprise, they can’t! This leaves us in a bit of a jinx about what to do with our luggage. We’ve already booked to stay airside at the Aerotel transit hotel thinking our luggage transfer will be taken care of.
Just wanting to check with people who’ve taken this route recently. Should we pass immigration, get our bags, and come back in to get to the hotel?
Or should we just leave our bags on the carousal to be taken to the left luggage space - we’ve read about people doing this on other threads here.
Have any of you tried your luck with the transfer desk to get them to sort the baggage?
Would appreciate any advise.
