I'm going to Tokyo from London with a 9 hour stopover in Dusseldorf in Germany. As the stopover is so long I was thinking of visiting the city centre to pass the time.
Just a couple of questions I need to ask:
1) I'm flying with Lufthansa from London to Dusseldorf and then flying onwards to Tokyo with ANA (Lufthansa codeshare). Due to the long stopover do I need to collect my hold luggage at all before leave the airport?
2) If I don't need to collect my hold luggage should I ask Lufthansa or ANA about whether my luggage is going to be on the connecting flight? I'm just worried after the long stopover that it might be left somewhere and forgotten.
