need help with booking a flight to Berlin

Jump to last reply

I am trying to book a flight from Chicago to Berlin on May 30 using Air Berlin.
The price for this ticket with the return date of June 24 is $690.00.
If you change the return date to July 8, the price goes up significantly.
I am planning on returning in July but I cannot pay $1,500.00 for the return date in July.
Here is what I discovered, though:
I found a flight with Air Berlin to Copenhagen with a stop over in Berlin with the return date on July 10 for about $830.00. The flight from Chicago to Berlin is the exact same flight number as the flight from Chicago to Copenhagen with the stop over in Berlin.
I am thinking of just buying the cheaper ticket and NOT taking the plane from Berlin to Copenhagen, and then I would like to do the same on the way back.
It should not be a problem going from Chicago to Berlin but I am afraid that they will cancel my ticket on the way back since I will NOT show up at the airport in Copenhagen.
Has anyone done this? Does the Airline care if I don’t show up on one of the connecting flights?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks!
