I scored a very attractive fare from YVR-BOM r/t in business (almost 40% lower than that from SFO). As luck would have it the return is from BOM-ZRH-SFO (on SWISS) and then SFO-YVR on UA. My assumption was that as US is first port of entry, I would need to remove luggage in SF anyway and so I could skip the last leg. I am getting conflicting reports on this – looks like they will check luggage all the way to YVR and that woudl mean I will need to take that leg and return back to SF. Any advise on this? Can I ask the agent in BOM to tag luggage upto SF, esp as I have a 6 hr layover n SF?
