Hi all,

will be off to Europe this week and after CI cancelled CI 054 BNE-TPE on Friday have re-booked CI 052 SYD-TPE on Thursday. Have booked myself on QF 505 BNE-SYD on Thursday morning. Here are my questions to everyone familiar with QF baggage agreements and/or SYD.

1) Does QF have a baggage handling agreement with CI so will QF in BNE check my luggage through to TPE (I now have a one night layover in TPE before continuing on to FRA due to the cancelled CI flight on Friday ex BNE) or even all the way to FRA ? Or will I have to collect my luggage in SYD and check-in my baggage with CI at the International Terminal ?

2) If QF checks my luggae through to TPE or FRA can just jump on the QF transfer bus departing air side at the domestic terminal to the international terminal and collect my boarding card from CI but what are my options transferring from domestic to the international terminal if I do have to collect my luggage after arriving from BNE. The QF transfer bus is air side so I assume I won't be able to collect my luggage and get back air side. In this case, do I really have to pay A$ 5.50 for the transfer bus ?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Cheers from Brisbane,

Peter

QF should be able to check the bags all the way through to FRA. In Feb, I was on a CX flight BNE-HKG-FRA-VIE, the FRA-VIE leg being operated on Adria Airways, a Star Alliance partner. On a separate booking - and there was no problem getting the bags tagged all the way through.

Yes. Some years ago, I used to travel on QF BNE-SYD to catch a flight SYD-VIE. Typically, IN BNE, the gate agent checked my bags all the way to VIE, but pointed out that I had to collect the boarding passes in SYD. At BNE Domestic terminal, there is a separate counter - look for 'International Connections' or 'International Passengers'. Or if you have QF status, then head for Business Class check-in.

In the unlikely event of you having to collect your luggage, then yes, you would have to cough up for the bus. Or if there is a couple of you and lots of bags, get a cab across. Less painful, and cost you probably $10. Cabbie will hate you for it, but they can get into the front of their queue afterwards.
