And yes you can get your bags out in my experience.
When you come back in 21 hours, you checkin for the next sector.
I have been looking to leverage some of these types of flight pairs to get a 'free' Singapore stopover on other journeys from Europe but I end up just wanting to take the quickest journey home.
Have a great trip.
To those travelers that have gotten their bags at Singapore, was that as a on a return or oneway j saver?
Are you technically allowed onto land side with a oneway non-stopover ticket? I'm also Considering breaking a journey on a oneway j saver but can I get out of the airport or will I be stuck shopping in the terminal?
Not a problem IME - have gone downtown a number of times if I have 5 to 8hr layover between flts - you just need your PP and BP to get back through immig.
To get back into the airport you need your passport and a boarding pass. So when leaving you will need to check in at the airport to obtain your boarding pass prior to clearing immigration (as normal.)
One thought: When I have gone into Singapore for one night stopovers I have planned just to take my carry-on and leave my checked bags with the airline. For instance, on your original itinerary you could check everything through to your destination, obtain both boarding passes in Melbourne. Dress and pack you carry-on for your Singapore stopover. When you arrive in Singapore, just go through immigration with your carry-on and head to your hotel. Your checked bags will meet you on your flight. Remember, for your J redemption you each have two pieces of carry-on. Another thing I like about this is it easier on the ground in Singapore as not as much to 'repack' when leaving.
