KLM - Can I check my luggage to AMS only?

I bought this Xiamen Air "Flash Sale" ticket a while ago. The flight will be operated by KLM and the return leg is PEK-AMS-CDG.
Since I'm based in London, I prefer to "miss" my second leg, collect my bag at AMS and fly back to London directly.
How likely are they going to allow me to check my luggage to AMS only at PEK? I know it may vary by staff, but would appreciate any advice, thanks.

KL has a "bag retrieval fee" for that, I think it's 275 Eur or so. (assuming you don't have an over-night/long connection in AMS)

Yes, but they make it expensive to do so.

For the next times, you should try to book the ticket with a long overnight layover at AMS. If it is <24h, it is not considered a stopover and thus the fare remains the same, but it will grant you the possibility to request a shortcheck of your bags to AMS.

For this booking, do note that if you book a CDG-LHR flight with AF, KL agents at PEK should be able to check your bags through to LHR. It will allow you a more convenient transit at CDG, though if one of your flight is delayed and you miss the connection to LHR you may not be protected...
