Benna, you answered my question perfectly the first time.* I just didn't want someone* to read this post at some future date and think they would be OK with skiping the middle part of their flight itinerary.
I'm very sorry to confuse anyone.* Just to clarify I'm speaking about two slightly different tickets on two different airlines but both scenarios described involve using only part of a scheduled itinerary.
Ticket one is:* I have a ticket that takes me from Denver to Houston to Frankfurt to Prague.* Then the return flight on that ticket is from London to Denver.* If I fail to take any one of those middle flights then the remainder of my ticket becomes void (according to Delta).
Ticket two is:* My ticket from prague to amsterdam.* Rather than buy a one-way ticket I'm gonna buy a two-way ticket but not take the return flight.* From what I understand so far this would not cause any problems and would save me a lot of money.
GermanWings flies from Prague to Cologne/Bonn, which is about 130 miles from Amsterdam. The following itinerary is just a suggestion, and of course, you're welcome to use it or not.
GermanWings Flight 4U 773 - Leaves 29 Dec 12:45, Arrives 14:00 - Total fare, 1.927 CZK ($77 US).
Then, according to RailEurope.com, there is a train leaving Cologne at 16:18 and arriving in Amsterdam at 6:55 for a total fare of $75.
So, that makes your one-way trip only $152 (or even less if you get a better-priced rail ticket). Again, just a suggestion, and created in a fly.
Hope it helps!
