DXB-BKK-HKG 70min connection time - luggage checked through

I have a business class flight from DXB-BKK-HKG with a 70 minute connection time.
DXB-BKK lands at 0650 and the BKK-HKG flight takes off at 0800

Does anyone know if my checked luggage will make it through to HKG if it is "checked all the way through"?

Or is there a chance that I get on the flight but my luggage doesn't get on the flight?

Thanks y'all

If it is all on 1 ticket booked inn TG then should be fine.

Of course all airlines have delayed bags from time to time - if this happens the bags will be delivered to you in HKG where you specify. But I wouldn’t worry.

I suggest you check the historical OTP. TG can run 1 hour or more late. Considering the situation in the gulf right now, I expect that delays are to be expected. The good news is that there is frequency between BKK and HKG

As long as the connection is legal, you should be fine - but as others mention, mishaps do happen so nothing can ever be 100% certain.
If you want to be absolutely sure, I suggest you travel with hand luggage only

Thanks all - my checked luggage made it all the way through.
The connections security line was super long and a bit stressful though (and no business class security lane)
Nonetheless, made it!
