Reply To: Interlining bags from BA to non-oneworld airline

Back to Forum


Even interlining bags or checking them straight through isn’t foolproof.

I’ve had several transit experiences in developing countries (notably Lagos and Johannesburg) where bags tagged through have come out on the belt. This got me to the point where if I have the time I stop and make sure.

It did however cause a problem in Lagos though connecting from Virgin to Virgin Nigeria where I could see my bag on the carousel but didn’t have a visa to pass through immigration. After much discussion I was escorted by an armed police guy to get it and take it back to the check in area.
