I tried looking for this scenario here, but I haven’t found anything the answers the entirety of the question yet. Sorry if it is a duplicate and I couldn’t find it!
We’re traveling from Asia to the US back on a return flight. That ticket has already been booked, but plans for one person have changed and they are planning on going elsewhere in Asia. So one person will be taking the return flight and the other won’t. However, it’s easier for the person staying in Asia to find an onward flight from the connecting airport in the multi leg flight, so they want to abandon the flight halfway through.
To be precise, the situation is:
- DPS - SIN
- SIN - LAX
That is for the person that is going to the US. The other person wants to do:
- DPS - SIN
- SIN - ICN
If they were alone, this would be fine, with some asterisks for baggage problems. However, since the two people are traveling together, what happens to the baggage of the two people for the second leg of the journey? Does one set of luggage get removed? If only the person that continues to the US checks luggage, I assume nothing happens, right?
I also assume that the person that is skipping the final leg won’t be able to check any luggage at all?
I saw this answer in the past:
PPBM: What happens if you check in luggage and then miss the flight? And it covers some of this question, but not all of it. If I’m trying to prepare for this situation, it sounds like I should check baggage under the person who is heading to the US, and no baggage under the person skipping out? What it seems to suggest is that the person heading to the US may get removed from the plane? Is that accurate?
Would love any insight into this! Sorry if there’s anything not clear in this description.
