I will be travelling from a small city to a hub airport to catch Etihad Airways flight to Abu Dhabi. Travel from the small city to the hub is by a local airline because Etihad doesn't land at the small city. The whole journey from start to finish is on a single ticket:
Local city - hub : local airline hub - Abu Dhabi: Etihad Airways All of these on a single ticket.
If my flight gets delayed at the small city due to weather and I miss my connection at the hub, does Etihad reschedule me free of charge or do I lose my ticket?
