|Quoting DeltaGator (Thread starter):|
Delta couldn't sell me the combined ticket so I purchased the two tickets separately. Will that affect my ability to interline my bags? Thanks in advance for the help.
If they were smart, they booked both itineraries in one PNR - that way most airlines (though certainly not all) will not cause too much of a hassle...
If there are two separate PNRs (if, for exmple, you booked one though Delta and the other through Singapore - instead of both through the same agent), then there's really not much you can do except re-check your bags: what is sometimes called "linking of records" is nothing but putting a remark into the booking that there's also another itinerary booked for you; whether the person at check-in choses to look for that, or if, indeed, that person is even able to see that other record is rather doubtful.
The one thing that some seem to think is done, but that is technically not possible, is joining two separate PNRs to create a single PNR: you can split one PNR and get two, but you cannot join two to get one.
