The rule is called "End-on-End"(not "back-to-back").

When you want to fly AAA-CCC, sometimes the combination of AAA-BBB ticket and BBB-CCC ticket is cheaper than AAA-CCC.
If ticket rule allow this, you can combaine two ticket as one booking and pay just sum of AAA-BBB & BBB-CCC tickets.

Sample:
Code:
END-ON-END COMBINATIONS PERMITTED

We are almost there. SK is limiting the allowed carriers more and more for each time sh*t happens. Just look at the rules during the last strike. Only the last day SK opened up possibilities to rebook to AF for example.

Don't worry, man. It will be there sooner than you think.

This is probably why the start to limit the number of C seats. Just to guarantee that these passengers won't get into the comfort zone of 28inch.

I think this will happen rather soon.

I hope not. But all the charter flights has this so why not.

Probably they will start selling lounge access cards or membership cards like the US airlines does.

I have experienced this twice I think. The worst part is that I get the travel confirmation from the corporate travel agency I don't get the ticket number(s). So I don't actually know if the PNR contains of more than one ticket or not...

Has anyone experienced this practice in reality yet?

If you check your itinerary online then you should be able to see the two ticket numbers in there, works at least in Amadeus in my experience.

That is what I also use. For a short while after the new design was introduced, though, checkmytrip.com didn't show the ticket numbers even though they were issued. It was corrected a few weeks later though.

One of the situations where I had two tickets in one PNR was a trip around USA where the number of segments exceeded 9 so that two tickets were required. In this case it is clearly written on the tickets that the two tickets are issued in conjunction with each other.

Reading on SAS Sales Info it says the following:

Through check-in of passenger and baggage from all destinations except Norway
Through check-in (TPD) of passengers and baggage holding separate tickets is not permitted.
To be able to through check-in passengers and baggage to the final destination the tickets must constitute one contract and there must be a reference between the tickets (issued in conjunction with each other).
So if the tickets are referenced to each other in the PNR it may actually work with thorugh check-in. Or?
