I am flying from from BOM-IAH with a baggage allowance of 2 bags of 23kg each for check-in luggage. On the return, I booked a flight from AMD-BOM on Air India which only allows for 1 bag with 25 KG in check-in baggage. So, I booked tickets for 2 persons, to be able to have check in 2 bags, one for each passenger.
After checking in both passengers and bags, if the other passenger does not board the flight, would I be allowed to take his bag for him? Would they remove the baggage from flight when they realize that the other passanger has not boarded?
I just want to avoid the return fare for the second traveller. If this will not allow, then I have to book return flight for that passenger.
The flight ticket is 1400 Rs, and extra baggage is 8000 Rs, so extra baggage is not a feasible option :).
