very short lay over, what to do?

Hi there,

will have four hrs in HKG airport one way and five on the return leg.

Will my luggage be checked from BKK?

or can I check it all in straight away for my next flight?

Is there much to do in the airport, a lounge where we could sit for a while perhaps? a decent place to eat?

Thanks for any help you may be able to give!

1. Re: very short lay over, what to do?

Whether your luggage gets checked through all the way to your destination depends on the airline and your ticket. So you have to check with your airline.

And with such short time layover, (IF your flight is on time too !) Whether your luggage gets checked on not all the way, I would still recommend that you hang around the airport instead of the hassle to get out.

There are LOTS of stores/duty free, Starbucks, Maxims, and many other restaurants/cafes that you can eat at.
