Hi all, I have booked a business class trip from Kuala Lumpur to Adelaide using Qantas points on Malaysia Airlines.
If I pay cash for a further flight from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur also on Malaysia Airlines will I be able to check my baggage through to Adelaide despite the two flights being on separate tickets and one being ticketed through Qantas?
It's a short stopover in KL so if they won't check through baggage I'll have to look at another airline.

I have done Malaysia Airlines Melbourne to KL to Chennai on 2 tickets, luggage checked through with no problems. Then Chennai to KL on Malaysia Airlines then onto Heathrow with BA again luggage checked through all the way on 2 different tickets with no problems. Just need to show the E Tickets and the check-in staff will link up.
Thank you both for the information. Very helpful.

Do it often and it works. When it fails, it fails spectacularly.
