skip flights?

New
Sep 28, 2018 7 Comments

I have 2 interviews scheduled with 2 different Bay Area companies next week, one on Friday and the other on the following Monday.

Company A is flying me out on Thursday, and back home on Saturday.

Company B is flying me out on Sunday, and back on Tuesday.

I’d rather get a hotel room and stay in SF.

Would that look bad or upset the companies? Considering the flights are already booked?

    Your second itinerary will be cancelled if you don't take the outgoing flight to SF. I would arrange this with travel with the two companies. They literally won't care and can accommodate.

    Unless they were purchased as two one way tickets, skipping the first segment of a return flight will invalidate the return leg.

      You don't earn miles if you're not sitting on the flight.

    You can skip flying out on Thursday and then skip out Sunday flight and inform them that you still made
    It to Sf. Won’t hurt! Have your story ready ...
