Flying into Suvannabhumi at 11am on 1st Nov. Then afternoon shuttle with AirAsia back to Phnom Penh .Went to the AirAsia office to enquire whether my bag could be transitted through from Kuwait Air flight to their Phnom Penh flight.She told me I have to enter Thailand pick up my bag then go back out.So, basically I have to queue to get an entry stamp then 5 minutes later queue to get an exit stamp.This seems like craziness to me.Does anyone have any experience of this problem of transitting bags through two airlines particularly AirAsia? Is there another way.I'm happy to pay.
Air Asia is a point-to-point carrier, i.e. they don't have "connecting" flights except for Fly-Thru which doesn't apply in your case. So you have to go through immigration, baggage collection, and check in again for the AA flight. Bummer!
Yes I was afraid I'd have to do this.
Maybe it's something airlines could address in future.A little cooperation between them, even if they charge a handling fee, would go a long way to help the poor old passenger.
