Normally, when not flying a leg in your reservation, the airlines will cancel the rest of the reservation. Does the same rule apply for open-jaw reservations? I can't seem to find any official reference for this.

  • Why would it be any different?

  • @Gagravarr ARNK can be so flexible, sometimes multiple ARNKS in the middle of one reservation in a very long period which makes the possibility of losing one leg is much more than a normal reservation. Commented Sep 8, 2014 at 17:04
  • Maybe I am missing something here. What is ARNK?

If it's the same airline the whole way through and/or all sectors are on the one ticket, it will be counted as a 'no-show', and your onward flights will most likely be cancelled. If it's a separate airline and a separate ticket, then the no-show prior to the ARNK shouldn't impact your onward travel.
