I am travelling from Kolkata to San Francisco via Hong Kong on Cathy Pacific. I am allowed two pieces of checked-in bags. I also have a 18 hr layover in Hong Kong. I was planning to check-in 1 bag at Kolkata and book it through to San Francisco. I was planning to go into Hong Kong during the layover, buy a suitcase and then check it in from Hong Kong through to San Francisco. Will that be allowed by the airline (Cathay Pacific ) ?
thanks in advance for any responses.
