Interline with TK?

I'm flying domestic MH connecting to international TK flight with 6 hrs layover in KUL; any chance they will tag the bag all the way to IST?

[edit] Right, *if itís on separate tickets*, it would be against policy; people have gotten it through on intíl -> intíl connections (from mainly outstations), but definitely a YMMV situation. Rereading though, given yours is domestic -> TK intíl, not sure how MHís domestic flight check-in staff would react to that request...

See othersí experiences here: Malaysia Airlines Official Policy on Checking bags on separate tickets

if same ticket all the way, sure.

If not, the agent may or may not. The refusal is very much within their SOP but 6 hrs layover is an eternity; to pickup your bags and recheckin at the TK counters. Although the latter may only open 3hrs before STD - so you may face a lull at KUL.
