No-show first leg on multiple pax booking?

Hi Friends,
Quick one - flying to OSL with a colleague next month. What happens if I no-show on the first leg? I'm not worried about my return leg (I assume it will be cancelled) but I don't want my colleague's itinerary to be disrupted.
Any insight greatly appreciated.

Nothing will happen to your colleague and yes your return will,be cancelled.

Each passenger has his own ticket with a unique e-ticket number. That e-ticket has fare rules. What you do with your e-ticket affects you and no other person.

The only exception is when one ticket is dependent on another, e.g., 2-4-1 and other such deals.

Are you on separate tickets, or the same ticket, as if on the same ticket, you should tell someone, as it would effect the other person.

It shouldn't affect anyone else in the booking, just the passenger missing the flight.

No it won't - as previously stated several times - affect the OPs colleague flights.

Every individual has their own ticket even if it is part of the same PNR as other peoples. The two passengers may be on the same PNR but that is not the same as being on the same ticket

There is no need for the OP to tell anyone.

With many airlines, to get a voucher for the nonrefundable ticket value to use towards other flights, you need to cancel ahead of time. Other airlines, the voucher will be credited to your account even if you're a no-show. Not sure which category BA falls into, but might want to make sure of this just in case so you don't lose your ticket value.

Can’t the answer be found in the ‘Attaché guide to travel’? 😁

There is no such thing as a ticket for more than one passenger.

I think that's a North American perspective. Nonrefundable tickets issued in Europe typically have no value if cancelled (beyond the negligible taxes that can be refunded).

If you ask for the bookings to be split you will get a new record. I did this and was then able to cancel the new record within 24 hours at no cost- got a full refund. It wasn't intentional, I asked for them to be split and they asked me which one I wanted to change- I said my travel partners as that was the intention so they then gave me a new record. Logging into the new record for saw it was cancellable- so I did. You must get the new number- and mine might have been a fluke as never read about it on here before. Tell them your travel partner is the who may want to change- which is why you are splitting.
