If you haven't got checked luggage, then you can avoid immigration and do an airside transit, if you printed out your boarding pass beforehand (some exceptions).
Not sure with AK, they make a big deal about not permitting airside transit if you didn't purchase as one ticket, one issue might be the requirement for BP and doc verification, if you self print your BP usually has a mark that it must be verified (there's a dedicated counter in the check-in area for this) and security won't let you through without the stamp, not sure if this would be an issue at transit security, and as you say, it may be depending on the destination (had this both going to HAN and to HYD, both times on passports requiring a visa for the destination, which might explain it)
