Flying on delta ?

5 posts in this topic

If you fly on a flight with a conection flight. do you have to be on all the flights? I am traveling to Cinncinatti for Easter and it is cheaper to fly from Chicago to Cincy with a connection in minneapolis than to fly from Minneapolis. Do I have to be on the flight from Chicago to Minneapolis to get on the flight from Minneapolis to Cincy? Does anyong know?

If you do not make the originating flight they will cancel the remaining legs. I had this happen one time they said I didnt fly to where I was and because I didn't make the originating flight they canceled the rest. Funny. I sure didn't walk the 800 miles. They screwed up and because they didn't think I made the originating flight the whole itinerary was gone. This was NWA.

I would just call the airline and just ask them directly.

I am sure that if you don't check in for the first leg of the flight from Chicago in Minneapolis and then all of a sudden show up and try to check in for the second leg of the flight there will be problems. I don't think its worth trying.

Perhaps if you call the airline and discuss the situation with them you'll be able to figure out a solution. They may have a way of letting you do this with prior advanced warning. Or they may honor the lower price if you explain to them how the 2 leg flight is cheaper.

How much is the difference in ticekts anyways? You can always catch a cheap flight to Chicago first and get on the first leg of the flight. Ticket will probably run you less then a $100 on Southwest. Its alot of hoop jumping but if you want to save $$$ it might be an option.

eyebjim is correct. Once you start missing the legs of the connections they start canceling the remaining legs.
