Can I just throw away a segment and buy a new ticket?

Hello,

​​​​​I currently have a reward ticket on Copa from Brazil to Sint Marteen (SXM) via Panama. Because of a change in plans, I now need to go to San Jose, CR (SJO) instead of Sint Maarten. Can I just buy a PTY-SJO ticket on Copa that departs 2hrs after my flight comes in from Brazil? When I check-in in Brazil, can I ask them to discard the PTY-SXM segments and check me through to SJO, instead?

Has anyone ever tried the above? Is there a risk they will cancel all my flights due to overlapping bookings?

Thanks!!

You'll probably need to have no check bag or carry on bag for this to work.

Otherwise just pay the change fee for the reward ticket to change to SJO. The PTY-SJO is $160 itself.
