Can I "walk away" from the second leg of my flight?

Jump to last reply

If I take a flight from Kona (KOA) to SJC, it routes KOA > LAX > SJC for $421 - a great rate. However, it has a 5.5hr layover at LAX. If I want to just get off at LAX and switch carriers, can I just walk away from the second leg?

Obviously I do not want my luggage going to SJC. If I tell the agent greeting the flight, will she notify luggage services to remove my luggage and send it to the baggage carousel? Will I be blacklisted in any way for not taking the entire flight?

When I price flying KOA > LAX, same carrier, same flight, the price $1300! Not sure why it so much cheaper to fly less (i.e., omitting SJC leg). Maybe it's a glitch in their system, if I hear back that it's okay to not finish my itinerary, I'll book it right away as they will probably honor it once it's booked.

I'm trying to get from Kona (KOA) to Buffalo (BUF). I'm trying to leave late Dec 30, get to the mainland by early next morning and then fly on to BUF, possibly switching carriers.
Any insights or suggestions much appreciated.
