Is it possible to buy a ticket for a transfer and not to use part of the route?
Often, travelers have questions &# 8211; Is it possible to take a ticket with a transfer and get away from the route in the middle of the way, t.E. not to use the second flight segment? Today we will consider in detail this case.
Airplane pricing may seem very strange for the average. Look, please air ticket Moscow &# 8211; Riga Airlines Air Baltic worth 6,745 rubles.
A Moscow &# 8211; Tallinn with a transfer in Riga 4,723 rubles:
In this article we will not deepen into questions why so, and answer the question, Is it possible to buy a ticket to connecting flight and do not use the second segment of the route, In this case, the Riga Tallinn flight.
Unambiguous answer to this question can not be given. There are some important restrictions.
If you missed one of the route segments, then All subsequent are automatically canceled.
You bought a ticket Moscow-Riga Tallinn and decided to go out in Riga, t.E. Skip the flight Riga Tallinn.
In this case, nothing terrible will not happen, the only negative is that if you are a participant in the airline bonus program, then miles are not accrued for the entire route.
If you bought a ticket back-trip, for example, Moscow-Riga Tallinn Riga-Moscow, then everything is not so smooth.
You go out in Riga, and how we wrote above, All subsequent segments are automatically canceled. These are Flights Riga Tallinn, Tallinn Riga and Riga-Moscow, T.E. Take advantage of the ticket you will not be able. And no matter where you are planning to fly back, from Riga or from Tallinn &# 8211; Your ticket is annulled.
Is it possible to return the money in this case? If you bought it in cheap tariff, then unambiguously no.
Therefore, remember: it is possible to interrupt the route, but only if you bought a ticket one way.
How to register luggage to transplant point?
Another problem with which you may encounter in this case &# 8211; baggage. By default, it must be registered until the final point. Recognize at the front desk, which you specifically bought a ticket with a transfer to get out in the intermediate point. Bad idling &# 8211; This is a violation of the airline rules. Therefore, two options:
- fly only with manual loop
- Come up with a significant reason why you need luggage in the change point.
But baggage is not all ;
If your flight canceled, the airline can offer an alternative route to the end point, t.E. Tallina. And it can be like a flight with a transfer, for example, in St. Petersburg or Helsinki and and direct flight to Tallinn. There is no way to go out in Riga.
How legally cancel the following segments?
Completely legally, nor in the aircraft, nor in the Montreal or Warsaw Convention there is no ban on it.
The airline provides a service and provides it on the rules established by it. Cancellation of segments is one of the rules that is spelled out in the tariff.
Please tell me if I buy a preferential ticket Havana &# 8211; Frankfurt (through Moscow), performed by Aeroflot, and I am going to stay in Moscow, I would like to know whether I need a Schengen visa, whether it will be required when landing in Havana?
Airline employee has the right to check the availability of a visa. If not, he has the authority to refuse to transport you. But whether it will be checked or not to know in advance.
No you can not. Once you do not come to landing Lisbon-Amsterdam, all subsequent sections of the route (in your case, this is Amsterdam Almaty flight) will automatically be canceled.
; This is a violation of the airline rules ; &# 8211; And you can cite an example of the rules that violates such behavior?
