Let's say I am travelling from India to Minneapolis.
Let us also assume that I like Emirates, and prefer flying on it. Let us also assume that I did not get any of the shorter flights to the US east coast, and hence have booked myself on the longer DXB-SFO flight.
Now, on the flight, due to unforeseen circumstances, the pilot announces that we have to refuel and MSP is the refuelling stop.
Can I get off at MSP?
I searched for similar questions, and all I found was: Can I opt to disembark on a stop over (if I am a national of that country) before the second leg of the journey? which deals with a flight that has a known, scheduled stop.
