I have a flight from Frankfurt to Dushanbe with a stopover in Moscow. Flight from FRA to MOW is with Transaero, from MOW to DYU with UTair. I have excess baggage because im travelling with a bicycle. Now my question: do i have to pick up my baggage in Vnukovo and re-check it in? And do i need a transit visa therefore because i have to change the terminals?
I already asked the airlines a couple of times, but this is too confusing.
Transaero says: baggage goes directly to Dushanbe, no visa needed.
UTair says: I have to pick up my baggage in Moscow and i need russian transit visa to re-check it in.
Then i told Transaero what UTair was telling me: Transaero said that it is wrong what UTair is telling me. My baggage is going through because in FRA they put the sticker DYU on my baggage.
Telling this to UTair: Transaero is wrong and they cant decide this...Its the decision of UTair and Transaero has nothing to do with it.
Anyone can help me with this?
