When I purchase flight ticket in same agency and with Emirates/code share (for example JFK-DXB-PVG) and clear customs & immigration during the layover, can I drop off extra luggage in Dubai to final destination (DXB- PVG), if:

  1. I have not dropped off luggage before?
  2. My free luggage allowance (Number & Weight) has not used up?
  3. I have already used all free luggage allowance and wish to purchase extra luggage allowance in layover cities counter?

PS: Please not that a possible duplicate of Checking In Luggage During Intermediate Leg is talking about United, not Emirates.

    Where will this mystery piece of extra luggage be coming from? And will you be entering Dubai (clearing customs+immigration) during the layover?

  • @Flimzy But you wake up a bad question and do something meaningless

  • @Him: No, I "woke up" a bad question to consolidate it, and the other several semi-duplicates, into a single, authoritative answer, as per this meta post.
