Hey guys, I have a complicated question (well sort of)
We're flying on SQ from JFK-MNL via FRA and SIN roundtrip but I would like to change the outbound from IAH-MNL via DME for the sake of going to Russia and trying out SQ's 77W so I could compare it with the A388.
However, the flights from NYC to IAH is very expensive, CO/UA is asking for $800 one way! While US is asking $250 via CLT. We have to go through IAH and not HOU.
BUT, when I was searching on Kayak.com, I came up with this fare: $137 on CO LGA-IAH-SAT which is incredibly cheaper than the rest, the problem is that we're going to have checked-in luggage. Is it possible to ask the agents at LGA if they could just tag our baggage just for IAH and not all the way to SAT? Or is it prohibited? Also, is it possible if UA will automatically connect our baggage to our SQ flight at IAH?
