Good for you... I really don't know what you are trying to prove by continuing with this attack on me starting the thread. Surely it isn't down to you to tell me what I understand and what I don't. I felt I needed to post and while you may have felt that previous posts/threads adequately explained the situation I did not... hence my post.

Why continue to try to convince me that I shouldn't have posted? I felt I wanted/needed to ask and so as a forum member I did. If you don't think you can personally contribute to this thread then don't post but please let those that can/want to help do so. Dissuading people from making legitimate posts or asking legitimate questions is, IMO, against the spirit of the forum.

This is my last post to this thread as I do now feel I understand the situation. Thanks to all those that helped

A slight variation on this.

I booked BRU-LHR-PHX-LHR-BRU.

Plans changed (new wedding in the family) and instead of flying LHR-BRU, I need to fly to Malaga (AGP).

Repricing the tickets is insanely expensive.

Sadly, BA is the only carrier that flies to AGP. So, not only do I have to drop LHR-BRU segment, but I would have to book another flight LHR-AGP on the same day if I intend to make my plans work. The wedding is the following day, and Iím expecrsd to be at dinner.

Thereís plenty of a layover such that connecting mostly likely it isnít an issue. However, Iím worried thatís BA will see that Iíve boarded another BA flight instead of the one I booked.

Even if i book via a TA, BA will hve my passport info when I re check-in at Heathrow.

Thoughts?

I've had no problems in ending up with 2 reservations ex LHR for the same day in the past when wanting to change my last sector & finding that a new separate ticket was cheaper (in fact I told the call centre when they gave me the change quote & no objection was raised...)
You'll possibly need to restrict yourself to hand baggage though.
If you're really worried, you could leave your BAEC number off the AGP booking but I really don't think it's necessary as both are valid bookings and if BA ever chose to chase the missed BRU sector, a no-show on the original final sector wouldn't invalidate a new and completely separate AGP booking.

Another element is that the world outside can change and it seems quite reasonable to me to ask again, given recent news stories (albeit non-BA).

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/n...a-skiplagging/

Although Ďsearch before askingí is a standard expectation, where someone has done so but for whatever reason wanted to ask further, then filling half the thread with questioning why theyíve done so seems unwelcoming and pointless. Why even open the item, if the title doesnít interest you?

Personally iím glad it was asked as Iím doing the same next week and welcome the added (and up to date) reassurance.
