Air India pricing issue

I am looking to book the following but the price as one ticket is nearly double the price of two separate bookings. I want one booking for seamless through transfer of baggage.

Vienna to Delhi to Bangkok with a 5 day stop in Delhi is around 550 one way
Delhi to Hirasar (Rajkot) is around 200 return within this 5 day stopover

Booking as multi city Vienna to Delhi to Hirasar and then Hirasar to Delhi to Bangkok is over 1200 for the exact same flights as above. The Hirasar sectors are booking into a much higher booking class when done as multi city.

Can the call centre book the whole itinerary on one PNR and split the ticket if necessary to get the 550 + 200 rate, total 750, so that I can through check my bags from Vienna to Hirasar and then also from Hirasar to Bangkok?

Thanks

Very unlikely. But you have nothing to lose by calling them.

I called. It was a hard no. I have to book as two separate tickets even though all four sectors are on Air India.

Ticket 1 is VIE-DEL-BKK
Ticket 2 is DEL-HSR-DEL in the middle of ticket 1 dates

Separate tickets are not ideal in terms of connecting bags and missed connection protection etc but the gaps are long enough that it should be fine.
