Problem with missed flight connections?

Jump to last reply

I live between two TX cities with an airport. If I take a direct flight from city A (bigger airport of the two) to London, it's $386 MORE than taking a connecting flight from city B to city A and then the same direct flight to London. I booked the flight from city B to save $. Now I would rather skip the connecting flights (even tho it's a closer commute and a smaller airport) because it's sceduled for 9:15 AM departure/10:15 landing in city A, while the direct flight from city A is not until 6:30 PM. No other connecting flight available from city B.

Also, the return connecting flight is only 1 hr. 40 min. after we land from London to city A. We hope to not have any checked baggage, but still - would this be enought time to change planes in a big airport?

I guess what I'm getting at is: would there be any kind of problem (all flights with the same airline) with "missing" the connecting flights and just taking the direct flights from city A?

If not, should I contact the airlines to tell them I will miss the connecting flights?

Hope this all made sense - we are not frequent flyers and don't know flight protocol.
