I just booked two award seats on SQ291 for travel around Christmas. We are both heading to Wellington but unfortunately only one award seat was available in Business for the entire journey - so I booked myself to CBR only and will buy a revenue ticket for the second leg to WLG should no availability open up. I will be tagging both bags under my partner - so technically only travelling with hand luggage. We are travelling ex ZRH and they are pretty good with interlining and providing all the boarding passes for the entire journey as I have done several trips in the past. My question would be: If I disembark in CBR already holding a BP to WLG and not needing to reclaim any luggage in CBR - can i remain in transit or do I need to clear immigration and customs? I am seated in the first row on the flight so it should be rather quick but I'd rather avoid if I don't have to
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
