Long time reader, first time poster, so forgive me if this has already been asked. I tried to do a search as best I could!
I am booked onto CX 170 from PER to HKG (with a friend, on same itin) and am about to book CX 368 onwards to Shanghai.
As it worked out cheaper to book as two separate legs and Cathay state that you must allow 50 mins to transfer as a min, my question is, if I book this flight am I able to call Cathay and ask them to link the two trips onto one booking so we can go straight to the transfer desk in HK and not have to go landside?
Also, do you think we would be able to check our bags all the way to Shanghai Pudong from Perth if this is the case?
Appreciate any feedback! Cheers.
