    F you have a flight and your connecting flight is the next day, will they check luggage straight through or do you need to collect it and recheck?

    My experience has been: "it depends"! :confused:

    If your flights are contiguous on the same air carrier, or (maybe) the same "alliance" (*A, OW, ST), and the delay between flights isn't that long (say 3-4 hours tops) during the date change, you should be O.K. It greatly depends upon the airline(s) and locations/airports, that you do not mention. Why not just call the airline and find out the answer?

    +1 on that. Call before showing up with your bags packed in anticipation of checking through.
    Dragging all of your crap through the streets of Paris because OS can't subtract is no fun.

    Them - "Sir, your connection is more than 24 hours."
    Me - "No it isn't."
    Them - "Yes it is."
    Me - "I land at 1:30 pm and depart next day at 11:25 am -- that's less than 24 hours."
    Them - "Sir, it's the next day, so it's more than 24 hours."
    Me - "Look, I'm not trying to argue with you here, but I'm pretty sure that's not how subtraction works."

    It really does depend on the airline(s) and connection airport involved. Without more details no one can say for sure.

    Heck, even with details not entirely possible that what should happen will once you're at the airport, but it offers better odds that way.

    jgg630, you must have already made your trip, care to share your experience? What airline was it and what airport did you have to overnight at and for how long? Did the airline accommodate you and check the luggage straight through? This kind of information could be helpful to some other forum members in planning their trips.

    Couple of years back I was traveling from DEL to DPS via HKG with an overnight at HKG. At the Cathay Pacific check in counter at DEL, the agent offered to book the luggage all the way to DPS, which was a big help. The lay over was about 20 hours and the HKG airport Marriott served us well. So, I guess, different airlines do it differently. It might be a function of the airport involved too.
