    Hello,

    This is my first post here. Please tell me is it's in the wrong area.

    I have a one-way reward ticket from DEN to FCO with a stop in FRA. I intend to stop in FRA and not complete the trip. I will be making a detour to IST and then FCO. Of course, I will carry on my bag.

    Is there any problem from United or customs from doing this. Should I notify anyone at United that I will not be completing the trip?

    Thanks,

    Alwaysbooked

    If you're elite and can get free changes just call and have them drop the last segment. Otherwise no big deal really. You'd have to clear Schengen immigration in FRA anyways (unless immediately continuing on to IST) so that would be the same either way.

    Thank you. So I should not notify anyone - gate agent, etc., that I will not be continuing?

    There is, IMO, no need to and no. Risk associated ww not doing so.

    Obviously don't check a bag. :)
