I booked a connecting flight through priceline.
HNL (Hawaiian Airlines ) > LAS
LAS (United Airlines > ORD
ORD (United Airlines) > MCI
The HNL to LAS flight changed it's departing time to 30 minutes later.
The schedule now is that I will miss my flight in Las Vegas by 13 minutes.
We have to re-check our bags changing airlines so that will take even longer.
We've also kind of made some change of plans in that we would like to have a mini 24 hour vacation in Vegas knowing that we won't make our flight we would like to be booked on one the following day.
Here are my ideas. Please tell me if you think one/more of these will be successful and why.
1. I call United Airlines and tell them I need to change my flight because of a schedule change. I would ask them if I could be on a specific flight that is at least 24 hours later. Will they have a problem with this at no charge?
2. Call Hawaiin Airlines and say since your plane schedule changed to leaving 30 minutes later, I will miss my flight in Las Vegas. Can I get a full refund? >> Is this even possible? Then, I could rebook my flight how I wanted it even with different airlines if I wanted too and I could leave Hawaii earlier and have more time in Vegas.
3. Call Priceline and tell them one or more of the above?
Which should I do, do you think any of these will work? What is your knowledge on this? I really want to spend a day in Vegas!!!!
