Hey BBI community,
So - this Wednesday evening I'm traveling from JFK to FAO (Faro, Portugal).
My wife and I have TWO DIFFERENT tickets:
JFK -> FRA on Singapore Airlines
FRA -> FAO on Lufthansa
~2 hours between arrival and departure times (cutting it close, I know).
I've done this once before, but my goal to save time/effort is to have Singapore Airlines in JFK to check our bag "through" - i.e. to have our checked luggage with both the tags for Singapore and Lufthansa flights.
I've had success with this once before when airlines are part of the same alliance, which these two are.
My question - in the event I'm successful, will I still need to grab my bag in Frankfurt and transfer it to another belt? Or will it go automatically?
Will I still need to do immigration or security? Or again, would I be able to skip that until I reach Portugal since I'll be leaving from the same terminal, and am flying internationally again
Any help would be appreciated!!
