I'll be going to HKG in june on MH and CX. On my way to HKG, I will make a stop for one week in Malaysia. I intend to stay in Penang. I've purchased my international tickets already, now I'm going to purchase the domestic tickets, from a different source (becaused it worked out cheaper). Here are the questions.
Flight MH21, arrives at 06.45AM from CDG into KUL. MH has morning flights to PEN at 7.35, 9.15 and 10.45 Obviously there will be no time to take the 7.35 flight. How about the 9.15? Bear in mind that I will have to collect my luggage upon arrival in KUL and need to go to the domestic terminal to recheck.
Can I, with 2 separately purchased tickets, but on the same airline, check my luggage in CDG all the way to PEN?
Will MH rebook me on a later flight in case the CDG flight arrives late in KUL? Even if I travel on 2 different tickets (but on the same airline)?
