Just looking at booking the family on a JASA MEL/LAX nearly a year out. I know you can't book a stopover when the booking is more than six-months out, but if I book a Melbourne to LA flight with a two-day layover in Singapore, can we get our bags in Singapore when we get off the Melbourne flight and recheck in for the connecting flight two days later? Or are our bags held at the airport "in-transit" for the connecting flight. If they are kept in security, I guess we could go shopping in Singapore and buy new clothes. I'm just worried about waiting until six months out from the flight and finding no availability.
