So i think im the biggest moron in the history of travel. I found a round trip ticket to FRA for 400 on US; despite US being the worst airline in the US in terms of service and just about everything else, the price was right. I however didnt realize untill after purchasing the ticket, that i have 1hr 20 min to catch my flight to CLT from ORD; and i have never been to ORD. the flight to ORD is actually on UA operated by SkyWest, and after following its stauts for the last few days have found out it regularly leave 1-2hrs late Its US 7682. the flight to CLT usually leaves on time US 1823, but if i miss my flight, i will probably miss my flight to FRA, because i only have 1 hr to connect in CLT. If i miss the CLT flight, im pretty sure there are no later night time flights to FRA anywhere on the East Coast by any other airline...so i just realized in all actuality, i got hosed by US...they sold me an itinerary that they should have known has a very low likely hood for me to make, given their crappy ontime performance. The ticket is partially refundable, so i was wondering, should i cancel it? Its on nov 25th, so im not sure the weather will hold in SLC or ORD, i dont know if US will rebook me to get to FRA if i miss my connection in ORD, or if they will leave me stranded, and i may not have a hotel if i get a day late to FRA...does anyone have any suggestions? Does US normally rebook passengers if the miss connections? Would they be able to get me to FRA if i miss the ORD-CLT segment? I really want to go to FRA and the price was really good, but since it seems the likely hood of getting there on time is low, i dont know if i should just cancel? Any tips or suggestions? the connection times suck.
Any help AT ALL would be appreciated.
