    Anyone have any experience in linking separately booked flights on the same airline? For some crazy reason on Lufthanza's website if I book LJU to MAN (Change in FRA) as 1 flight it is coming up as like 1300 Euros (2 people) for a specific flight. If I book LJU to FRA and then FRA to MAN as separate flights but for the same flight times it costs 500 Euro (2 people) ???? There is a 1 hour time frame to get off one plane and onto the other in FRA which should be okay I think. Any idea if I can book separately but then either link them after by contacting Lufthanza or link them at the airport so the luggage goes straight onto other plane? Thought I would see if anyone had done anything similar.

    Qantas will link them but you still have to collect luggage. They’ll also link people booked on separate tickets but flying together. Helpful for flight changes.
