Im wanting to book my flight over, but it's obviously difficult as the guys road tripping have no idea where they'll be in August (their destination is vancouver).
I had the idea of booking AKL - Vancouver via LAX, with the idea of possibly skipping the connecting flight if my friends were still in Cali. What's the deal with skipping the connecting flight LAX - YVR? My understanding is in LAX I'll have to collect all my bags anyway? What's the airlines stance usually on this? Obviously if my friends are in vancouver /Northern West Coast I'd continue with the 2nd flight.
Your thoughts appreciated!
