I'm taking a flight from Seoul to Taipei (on Korean Air) and then another one from Taipei to Paris (on Emirates) in August. The flights are on different airlines and booked with different reservations. I know that usually I would have to get my luggage at Taipei and check in again for the next flight, but due to certain circumstances, I will not be able to get a transit visa to fetch my luggage.
A contact told me that if I asked at the check-in counter in Seoul, they would be able to register my luggage for a transfer to my next flight, but I'm not sure yet if I can fully trust that. Has anyone ever been in this situation? Are they really able to ask for a transfer?
