I have a British Airways flight that will make a stop at London (from Rio de Janeiro) and then continue to Lisbon.
However, due to some issues, I need to stay in London a few days, but when I asked about changing my flight, I found the fees to be really expensive.
So what I'm hoping to do is basically "miss" my connecting flight to Lisbon and simply taking another air line (1-way) back to Lisbon after I'm done.
Now I'm just wondering do I need to tell british that I'm going to just "miss" my flight when I get to Lisbon? Or should I just leave?
Also, has anyone ever been hit with a fee for not taking a flight? (That's the last LEG!)
(Please note that I'm not trying to get british airways to rebook me or anything. And I'm also not expecting a refund for missing the flight. I just want to make sure I don't get hit with additional fees for purposely not making the flight. Likewise I do not expect to receive miles for any of the legs of the journey.)
Many thanks for any advice!
