"No Shows," Using Part of A Ticket, and Voided Res

"No Shows," Using Part of A Ticket, and Voided Res

This may have been discussed here before, if so, I apologise, but I'm just trying to educate myself (and maybe others) here.

I want to go to from Philly to San Juan, and stop to see friends in Florida on the way. US Air goes through Ft. Lauderdale en route to PR with a change of planes, and a RT PHL/SJU ticket plus a one way FLL/SJU costs less than a multiple stop ticket going PHL/FLL/SJU/PHL.

So, I figure, I just won't get on the plane when it departs from Ft. Lauderdale, use the one-way ticket to get to San Juan, then use the return portion of the RT ticket to get home. BUT, now I'm being told that if I don't show up for the FLL/SJU leg, they'll CANCEL my SJU/PHL ticket! Does this make any sense? Can anyone confirm that it is in fact the case? Can the airline take away my bought-and-paid-for ticket if I simply don't use part of it?

hi tbird...yes it is true unfortunately. Airlines have figured out that people were using the legs like that (skipping some) and then they started this policy. I am pretty sure that most of the airlines are doing this.

It is true. I needed to leave on a different day than I had originally planned and was just going to use the same return ticket, just not show up for the initial flight. The worst part is that Travelocity originally told me I could do this!! i learned my lesson with them!
