Standby with AA
My wife and two adult daughters are going to Vancouver and AA offers a flight from AUS-DFW and DFW-YVR. Unfortunately the best price is AUS-DFW at 5:30am and then DFW-YVR at 5pm. if it was me, I would book that flight, miss the 5am flight and take a later one (AUS-DFW flies every hour). Since they do not have status, is this recommended?
I am not concerned about availability because there are so many flights AUS-DFW. They would take the 12pm or 1pm flight and would arrive plenty of time.
Any suggestions or is this too risky?
I wouldn’t recommend it. Usually if you miss your first segment your ticket including subsequent flights is canceled.
[USER=385]@Tuan[/USER], did you try pricing it as two separate tickets just to see what comes of that?
