Not showing up for a connecting flight - to tell or not to tell?

Jump to last reply

I am returning to the USA from int'l city "A" to US port-of-entry "B" and then connecting to US final destination "C." I would now like to spend a few days in city B and then make other arrangements to get to C. A separate ticket from B to C is cheaper than paying the change fee. So I'm not going to call the airline's reservations desk ahead of time. Should I tell airline staff at B that I'm not taking the connecting flight from B to C? Or is it better to just be a no-show and quietly leave the airport? I will have my checked bag with me for Customs inspection, so there's no problem with my checked bag flying onto C without me. B to C is my last flight, so that's the only flight that the airline would cancel for no-show.

Do I need to be concerned about:
1. The airline and TSA discovering that my bag and I are unexpectedly not on the B to C flight?
2. The airline giving me a hard time the next time I book a flight with them?
3. The airline canceling my frequent flier account?

Thanks!
