Cutting trip short during layover

Jump to last reply

I have a question regarding not using part of my overseas flight reservation - basically leaving during a layover.

Facts - Booked trip with Delta Airline from Chicago to Rome and then onto Athens with Alitalia for 4 members of my family. Return flight is similar although flying with Alitalia the whole way with a 2 hour stop in Rome to change plane.

During the 2 hour stop in Rome one of the family members want to get off the plane and stay in Europe for a longer stay although the reservation is round-trip for all 4 of us. Realizing that the luggage will most likely be sent all the way back to Chicago from Athens I called Alitalia to see if that would cause any issues? She said I need to let the travel agent (expedia) know before we leave. Expedia told me no need and that I could just let Alitalia know at check in who was not going on from Rome and have the luggage just tagged to Rome. Basically the two contradicted each other and neither of them sounded like they knew for sure.

So please let me know if any travellers out there know which one of these two I should listen to?
