Splitting UA Reservation

Splitting UA Reservation

  1. NoName1

    I currently have a UA reservation for 4 passengers, round trip DEN-Caribbean-DEN.

    Now, I only need to fly TO the Caribbean, but the other 3 passengers still need to fly there and back.

    1) If I splice myself off into my own record locator right now, will I be able to only cancel the Caribbean-DEN while keeping the DEN-Caribbean portion?
    2) What if I splice myself off now, then call United only once I’m in the Caribbean?
    3) What if I splice myself off now, then don’t call United at all?
    4) Is there any way to get a refund for the Caribbean-DEN portion of my ticket?

    (Note: on the same day as the projected Caribbean-DEN departure, I have another UA ticket that goes Caribbean-NYC…..both tickets have my frequent flyer number)

    [I]Regardless, I [U]cannot[/U] jeopardize/risk the 3 other people’s tickets.[/I]

    Thanks all for your help, really appreciate it, and Happy Holidays!

    [USER=1702]@NoName1[/USER], are these paid tickets? Given the second ticket on the same day I would be proactive about removing that leg from your reservation after splitting yourself off from the record locator. You don’t want to have someone at UA spot a problem and make an executive decision. You may be able to get a refund, it will depend on your fare rules.
