I have read review that passenger will have to retrieve checked in luggage and go through custom and recheck in luggage.
is this information correct?
Yes the flight is with China Southern so I have to retrieve and recheck in the checked luggage.
Not a good process in my humble opinion. It will definitely steer away passenger.
