Mixed cabin Tickets out of India

Hi

Had anyone been able to ticket a mixed cabin tickets under the same ticket Number (Partner / Code Share Flights).

I live in a Tier-2 city and had to connect via DEL for most of the international travels. The company allows Business class for International Travels. But for the Domestic hop (1.5 hrs), it needs to be in Economy. Typically I get a separate ticket for the Domestic trip and checkin the Bags again in DEL & Pay the extra baggage fees (which is high when you consider the 2X32 Kgs allowance of International Business Class).

how are others dealing with it. the company TA (CWT) is not able / willing to issue the Y & J mixed cabin tickets on the same ticket #.

Thanks in Advance.

I know Emirates lets you book mixed-cabin itineraries through the multi city booking tool but for that your domestic segment needs to be on a EK codeshare partner.

Thatís crazy to do the domestic leg of the journey in Y if itís part of an overall international trip. That kind of rule makes very little sense.

But pretty much every OTA, TA and airline website can do mixed cabin bookings so I donít know what issue CWT could face.

Your only option is to do separate PNRs but then all your international connections will be at risk. Plus youíll pay more for luggage and the separate tickets etc. and face more hassle having to check in twice, collect your luggage and so on.
