    I expect it's still current. As others have said 1:45 is enough time at SYD if you've checked in for both your QF and AC flights at MEL. Also your bags will be tagged with International Connection tags in MEL, so all you'd need to do is get yourself onto the bus between T3 and T1...
    There are two separate facets to interlining. One is baggage and the other is boarding card. Qantas will interline bags with more or less any airline that uses one of the major airline reservations systems. Weather it is on the same booking is irrelevant, so long as you can show them your next flight they can enter it on the system and generate the baggage tag. The Qantas website says the cut off for passengers on domestic flight connecting to intenational is 45 minutes.

    However they don't issue boarding passes for all airlines they interline bags to, regardless of which alliance they belong to. For example Qantas can issue boarding cards for Singapore Airlines, but not for Thai airlines. So if you have the situation where they can check your bag through, but not issue you a boarding card, what you need to do is get the transfer bus (showing your Qantas domestic ticket and itinerary for you international flight), then when you get to the international counter you go to the check-in counter of your airline, tell them you came off a domestic flight and Qantas checked your bags though. You show them the baggage receipt they enter it in their system and issue you a boarding card.

    It seems that QF & TG don't have an interlining agreement, so what's the quickest/easiest option for transferring from the QF terminal to the International terminal?

    I did read that DJ have an interline agreement with TG, so might this be a better option?
    As I said in the post above with Thai, Qantas will check your bags through if you show them your Thai flight details. You then get the transfer bus, go to the Thai check-in desk and show them you baggage ticket. They issue boarding card etc.

    Thanks for the response, that would be perfect, having the bags checked through, but then checking in with TG in Sydney.

    One further question then...

    What happens with bag priority? I'll be probably travelling Y with QF, but travelling F with TG, so want to ensure that at the end of the TG flight, the bags come out first. Is that handled automatically by the systems, or do they need to have F tags put on the bags?

    One of two things can happen.

    Either Qantas, seeing the onward leg in F may tag the bag with their own First labels, or the bag can go through and usually someone from the interlining carrier will intercept it while it's in transit and affix F labels for the onward flight.

    Sometimes the first carrier will tag with their own priority labels and the second airline will still go down, intercept the bag and attach their own.

    Just on the issuing of boarding pass issues, Qantas doesn't issue BA boarding passes for a QF/BA via Sydney!

    Whilst QF can interline bags from QF to AC, they cannot issue boarding passes so you would need to get these from AC check-in at the international terminal prior to clearing customs.

    I would check with AC re the possibility of web checking the day before - don't know if they offer this facility or not. Bear in mind though at some stage AC will need to enter your QF bag tag numbers into the system with the weight. Because of this, even if you do get boarding passes online you will still need to 'touch base' with an AC representative to give them baggage details.

    Cheers

    Qantas do not put on Thai priority tags. In my experience though being Qantas Platinum Qantas will put on their own tag which has almost always been 'honored' by Thai.
