Ok my friend is arguing with me over this senario. If you flew IST-FRA-LHR and checked in and through checked your bags all the way and and got both boarding cards. If you decided when you got to FRA you wanted to stay overnight and just didnt show for the next flight what would happen to your bags?? Would you file a lost bag report in FRA or LHR ??? He would have another ticket with another carrier for the next day FRA to LHR.

Quoting OA260 (Reply 2): ok but what if you didnt wait for the bags and just told them the next morning when you went for the FRA to LHR flight???
Well thats just silly you would create massive headaches for the ground staff and because you would still be showing checked in with a bag we would have to put calls out in the terminal for you to come to the gate.
If youre bag was the first to be loaded then you would seriously delay the aircraft as we would have to look through all the bags to offload yours if you dont travel neither does your bag big security issue!!!
I have one piece of advice if you dont want to take your connecting flight then tell someone in advance and save us all this hassel!!!
plus if the airline has to send you your bag it costs around £100 a bag.
