I’ve eventually booked (for me) the dive trip I’ve had at the top of my bucket list - Truk Lagoon, in January 2024 (a couple of weeks before my 50th Birthday)
I have a question some of you may be able to answer about transit in Manila.
So I’ve 2 sets of flights booked, separately. Mainly because United aren’t on Amadeus and thus there’s no simple single set of flights you can take without it costing £8K or more.
So I am flying Manchester to Doha and Doha to Manila on Qatar.
Then I have about 6 hours layover / transit before my flight from Manila to Guam and then Guam to Chuuk on United.
On the way back I’m taking the same route but the transit in Manila is 2 1/2 hours.
So my question is - as it’s two seperate airlines, when I get to Manila, I assume I’ll have to collect my bag and then re-deposit it? As it’s not booked straight through, how does that work?
Any help / clues or experience that can help me here?
