    So flying to vegas on st pattys day. I want try to get an earlier flight but allegiant doesnt have more then 1 flight per day. I am sched to leave 9pm.

    I can get a frontier one way ticket for $107 including all taxes and arriver 12 hrs earlier.

    Anyone know what happens if i dont show for allegiant flight oyt there but do still want flight for way back???

    Allegiants site just says if you want to cancel 1 leg of flight you must cancel the whole trip and rebook a one way for the leg you still want.

    I am thinking just forgett that leave the ticket how it is and just book the cheap frontier.

    I have heard some airlines if you dont show for 1st flight will cancel your whole itinerary.


    Thanks

    Eeek deff want to avoid that and dang return flight is about as i paid for rd trip so guess i am stuck with just keeping original flight. From sounds of their policies.

    Yes, definitely do not skip your outbound if you still want to use them to fly home. People used to play games with connections that were cheaper than just one leg and this is how the airlines put a stop to it.

    If you booked the whole thing as a single itinerary, then yeah, they'll cancel your return ticket.

    But it you booked at as two one-ways, it shouldn't be a problem.

    This is one of those cases where you will probably need to call them because whats on their website is going to have been written with the assumption that a customer cancelling one leg of their journey is probably going to want some of their money back, but it sounds like you don't care about that?

    If you do not show up for a particular leg of a flight, the airline will delete the rest of your itinerary. All airlines do this. If it is the last leg of your trip, it doesn't really matter, but you are voluntarily giving up any claim to a credit, if applicable.

    It is definitely something you don't want to do repeatedly either...

    Yep.

    P.S. Don't ever do this if you have checked luggage. Bags are checked to final destination and you can't get them if you want to skip a flight leg.

    You could always give them a call and speak with someone in Customer Service and explain about not wanting to fly at 9pm when you can leave 12 hours earlier, especially since their airline only has that one flight as an option. Perhaps they can cancel the flight out while keeping your return.

    Assuming you are taking a loss on the cost of the flight, it's not like they are losing anything by making the adjustment.

    I've worked for an airline and a travel agency. No showing your outbound cancels your entire booking. Unless booked as two separate one way bookings.
