As your itinerary partly contains a redemption booking , qantas will tag your bags all the way to hel as they make an exception in that case

It depends on the gate agent. In theory as these are 2 PNR, current OW policy is no, they don't have to tag the luggage through. But if the gate agent is having a good day you'll be fine.

They should check you through all the way given it’s a mixed award flight.

You could've stored your bags at MEL, the bag storage is on the arrival level near where you collect your bags.

It is up to the individual agent taking your luggage. If you are unfortunate to be dealing with a machine, you may have a problem. A person will be more simpathetic than a self service check in.

Some OW airlines seem to recognise the dilemma of pax using a mix of paid and awards for travel.

As mentioned above, it should be through-checked, but worst case the SIN transfer desk will sort it for you.

Agent was wrong. Same PNR is the key there, alliance makes no difference.

is this a one world limitations? I travelled on 2 different tickets last month with a layover in hk. one with royal brunei and another on eva air to taipei. there is no alliance between the 2 airlines.
when in hongkong, i simply head to the transfer counters to check in for the connecting flights. There even have staff meeting us at the gate with sign board directing us to the correct transfer areas for our connecting flight airlines.

Seeking advice on whether Malaysia Airlines will transfer luggage from Qantas flight in Singapore and opinion of safety and service on Malaysian these days. Is it worth taking Malaysian for status run.

We have experienced no issues since the change at DFW when flying on to IAH with AA after QF7 or return. Later this year we will be flying QF1 to LHR and four hours later with BA to Rome; QF call centre has said there will be no problems. Equally, our daughter is flying QF to Hawaii and then Alaskan to Seatle, and QF have assured her all will be well. Her return flight will be Seattle to San Francisco and then QF to Sydney, and again she has been assured by call centre all will be well. Let's see!
We flew with Malaysia from Sydney to Penang via KL last year, and all four flights were without difficulty. Two grandparents (us), two parents and one 3 yo grandchild. The temporary lounge in KL was pretty basic, but staff courteous. Believe the new lounge is terrific. Enjoy.

Checked with my Finnair ground-staff friend. Yes, correct, they will not check the baggage through all the way on TWO DIFFERENT PNRs. In Singapore however, the ground-staff are so good, that you will not have to go Landside to get your luggage, you just go to the appropriate transfer desk and they will retrieve your luggage from the belt and re-check it for you onto your next flight. (most airports don't do this however). My friend has not yet confirmed whether the fact that part of the journey is on a reward makes any difference to that.
