Next Saturday (24th), I will be taking a daytrip that I found so rediculously cheap, I couldn't help but click purchase.
Delta 1916: DFW-ATL 0800-1102 752
Delta 1626: ATL-STL 1347-1430 M88
United 8052: STL-ORD 1553-1720 ER4
United 561: ORD-DFW 2020-2253 735
The layovers are 2h 45m in ATL, 1h 27m in STL, and 3h 00m in ORD. I tried to plan each flight with enough time in between the next in case of minor delays. I was just wondering if my ATL-STL flight arrived too close, or after the departure of the ORD flight; would UA understand our situation and reaccomodate us, or would we be liable for rebooking? We booked one-way tickets on Delta for DFW-STL, and United for STL-DFW. Also, we won't have any checked luggage. My dad wanted me to book a refundable room in ORD at the Hilton in case we had problems in ORD due to weather.
My big question is: If we didn't make it to STL in time for the UA flight to ORD, would UA reaccomodate us? Also, would be have to pay the extra fees for the change?
