We booked a flight from Manila to Christchurch with 1hr 40mins layover at Sydney. Upon booking, the details indicated at Sydney-Christchurch flight, its still Qantas Airways but already operated by Emirates and, the “baggage is not checked in through” I asked the the customer service to clarify what does that mean. She said that upon arrival at sydney, we still need to pick up our baggages & check in again going to Christchurch.
My questions are:
1) I’d like to ask (for those who have already experienced this) if 1hr 40mins is enough from picking up the baggages and checking in again?
2) Are we going to line up now at Emirates & not in Qantas?
3) Do they have different line for checking in, baggage drop & just for transfers?
Please enlighten me. I am bothered by this because we might miss our flight going to Christchurch given the 1hr 40mins layover & checking in the baggages again. Thank you!
