Do Thai and Singapore Airlines let people off the plane at the 1st stop on their flights from LAX-BKK/SIN? The layover isn't long; just an hour or so. What about other airlines that fly flights with a stop in them, like QF and BA on LHR-SIN/BKK-SYD, or SAA on JFK/ATL-JNB/CPT-CPT/JNB, or Emirates on DXB-SIN-SYD?

Generally, transit pax are allowed off at NRT,KIX with TG and NRT,TPE,HKG with SQ. Most times, pax are encouraged to disembark as they otherwise obstruct the cleaning of the a/c. However exceptionally there may be restrictions - either from the airline when the flt is running seriously late, or from the airport when the terminal is too busy. Airports like DXB, SIN and BKK positively encourage transit passengers to disembark and spend money!

LH does not let you off on FRA-JNB-CPT. SQ does not let you off on Mauritius on the SIN-JNB, or SIN-JNB-CPT.

Most airlines stopping enroute with a ground time of only about 1 hour do not let you off.

Yes, TG does.

Transit passengers must disembark to allow aircraft cleaning.

There are many passengers whose destination is NRT/KIX. TG also picks up Japanese passengers who want to fly to LAX.

Malaysia Airlines
On the KUL-TPE-LAX run you have to get off at TPE...
On other MH flights from eg. Asia (MNL, HKG, etc) via BKI to KUL you can go off if you like to...

In my experience of multi-sector long-haul flights, you either HAVE to get off (EK and most other airlines at SIN, BKK en route to Aus) or you're not allowed off at all. You used to be able to stay onboard if you wanted while some pax wandered off into the duty free shops but those days seem to have passed. If it is a case of having to clear the aircraft, you also have to take all your handluggage as well, which is a HUGE pain in the arse.

PS On recent flights (ie EK DXB-SIN), business class pax (ie me) in transit didn't get access to EK's biz lounge during the ground stop, although pax joining the flight at SIN presumably waited there.

Having flown the route may times, yes, they do, and encourage you to get off. It is actually very nice, to stretch your legs. They clean the plane while you are off it, but I was seated in the upperdeck, and was able to leave my belongings in my seat and the side compartments.

Thank you all for your help! I have a few other questions. What about the SAA flights I mentioned above? Also, when you deboard the plane, do you get your same seat if it's a stop like SIN on the LHR-SIN-SYD flight?

Airplanetire -

Its hard to say, cos there'll be a plane change in SIN, the LHR-SIN-SYD plane doesnt always go to SYD... You *could* get it back, but then again you might not.
