This is a little tricky but for those that can follow along, I'd welcome any feedback.
My wife, my son and myself have a roundtrip flight from Arkansas, connecting in Atlanta and arriving in Ft Walton, Florida. That part of the trip will be completed.
Due to an unexpected request from my son's doctor, we are to have an MRI scan done in Los Angeles a few days after we are expected to return from Ft Walton. Rather than go home to Arkansas, stay for a day, only to return to the hassle of what is our airport system, we'd like to just continue on from Atlanta to LAX.
To streamline our travel and luggage complexity, we would like to leave Ft. Walton, arrive in Atlanta, letting our checked bags continue on to Arkansas where family would retrieve them, taking our carry-ons for our shorter LA trip and board a completely new multi-city trip from Atlanta to LAX and then LAX to Arkansas.
The questions are: 1.) will our checked luggage continue on to Arkansas in the event we "miss" our flight from Atlanta to Arkansas. 2.) will we get flagged for boarding an entirely new flight to LA while the last leg of an old trip is still in progress.
Any answers would be appreciated.
