I have a flight next month and this flight got rebooked for a "technical stop". I suspected this was to pick up more passengers, but looking at the other "technical stop" questions here, a technical stop is used for refueling or inspection of the plane.
Here's the thing though: this technical stop is done after only 30 minutes of flying, about 150km (~90 miles) away from the departure airport. Basically, we will take off and land immediately at the next airport.
I've tried to contact their customer support as they also changed my outbound flight (although there's no stop, just a different departure time), but I ended up at a call center with people who are very hard to understand. I also wasn't notified of this change, I discovered this myself when I went to their website to look for baggage allowance. The airline I'm flying with doesn't seem to have a good reputation, so I'm a bit concerned about this sudden change. What worries me even more is that the same flight on the same day of the week doesn't have this stop on the previous and next weeks.
What could a "technical stop" mean in this context?
