9W to BKK can we thru check onto a TG connection?

Got a flight to BKK on 9W and then a domestic connection to HKT on TG. I have two seperate tickets for this journey. Can 9W check-in my bags till HKT from DEL? Also will they issue me a boarding pass in DEL or will I need to get that from a transfer desk in BKK?

Has anyone tried booking TG from DEL to BKK now days? They need a A380 on this route. Can never get any seats.

They should be able to check your luggage through. Not too sure you will be able to get a boarding pass for your TG sector though.

Thanks! Can anyone else confirm this? I am getting different results from
9W ticketing.

I was just wondering what what happens to the 9W metal that flies into BKK at 7am. Does it wait all day for the return journey at 6pm? Seems like a major waste for a aircraft to be grounded for 11+ hrs everyday.

Probably takes pax back BKK-MAA or BOM, and then flies empty back to DEL (unless a BOM-DEL scheduled flight out of Jet's several flights a day is a 330 in which case it carries passengers on its way back)

Has my wish come true??

I don't recall them flying the 332's between metros just yet, although I have been continuously requesting this....!

Yup right, and it strikes me that I have seen international configed 737s at least once on domestic 9W flights.

Yep you are on the right track.

BKK - CCU dept at 9:20
CCU - BKK return at 11:45

Both on the 73H which is the same metal as used in DEL - BKK.

Thanks

I flew the inaugural BKK-DEL service on a brand new 9W 737NG last year. Fantastic

The return a month later was also great. to 9W
