I have a reservation on NZ38 to HKG leaving LHR at 2115, and wanted to book a connecting flight from Edinburgh (BD 61, arriving into LHR at 1745). If I book the BD flights on the BD website, will NZ and BD let me join the PNRs together so I can check in my bags in EDI, and get both boarding passes without having to recheck in in LHR? Or will I have to get NZ to book the BD connection on my existing booking? I have a Silver Star Alliance card if that makes a difference. Thanks

I would have thought you would have to add it to your NZ ticket otherwise it would be 2 seperate tickets and I don't think that at EDI you would be able to check through.

the answer will be NO (it does state this on the BD web site)

'through check-in policy

If you have booked connecting journeys using separate tickets, we no longer offer the facility of through check-in or through tagging of baggage. Only passengers with flight itineraries issued on a single ticket with one booking reference will qualify for the through check-in service, subject to minimum connection times. This policy applies to all connecting flights (bmi to bmi, bmi to other carriers and all codeshare flights). Passengers choosing to purchase separate tickets should allow sufficient time to collect any baggage and check-in again for onward flights.'


If you book through the Air New Zealand UK web site you can book from EDI thru to HKG and your bags will go all the way.

a basic airfare from EDI to HKG with BD and NZ cost's around 510.00 GBP return for 'Pacific Class'
