I have two separate tickets - one on Flydubai to Terminal 3 and then another one from the same terminal on Emirates. Will Flydubai agree to check my luggage through to Emirates? The Emirates pages on Flydubai partnership says its possible on a single ticket, but what about separate tickets?
If it matters the FlyDubai flight is FZ1942 and the Emirates flight is EK229.
Update: called FlyDubai, they said they can check the bag all the way through. Will add an answer once I actually complete the flight.
Yes, they will! The trip ended up with hand luggage only in the end as I didn't pack as many stuff as expected but when asked at the Flydubai check-in counter it was confirmed that they can check luggage through on an Emirates ticket. The Emirates connection desk likewise confirmed its possible when handing out the boarding pass. Finally I've called Flydubai a few days before the flight and the operator confirmed this is possible free of charge.
So the answer is: yes, they'll do it. If somehow you encounter an unhelpful agent who refuses to do so, dnata (the local luggage management company) will do it for around 90 USD.
