I am travelling SYD-BOM return on 2 separate tickets:
(A) SYD-SIN return with BA and (B) SIN-BOM return with MH (via KL).
My issue is that BA flight reaches SIN @ 9:35 pm and MH flight to BOM does not depart until next day @ 6 am.
Q1 - although I'm flying on 2 separate tickets, can my luggage get checked through to Mumbai considering BA and MH are both part of OneWorld.
If Yes - Great (issue solved) but if No then
Q2 - how early can I check in with MH flight as soon as I collect my luggage in SIN (& clear customs)? I imagine, it wouldn't take more than an hour from the time BA flight lands in SIN (i.e. @ 10:30 I should have cleared customs). Will MH counters be open @ 10:30 pm for me to check in/bag drop for 6 am flight next day?
The reason why I ask this is because I am planning to use Airport transit hotel for a night's sleep instead of leaving airport and going into the town.
Will appreciate your guidance re options/tips etc.
