A few months ago I booked a bargain flight on expedia.com.au - London Heathrow to Los Angeles return, (North West Airlines going out (via Minneapolis) and Air France non-stop coming back - £128!!!!!! each for me and my wife next May.
The problem I have is our holiday plans have changed. Once we get to Minneapolis we would now like to drive to LA.
1. Do we risk having our return leg with Air France cancelled if we don't get our connecting flight from Minneapolis to LA, even though the return leg is with a different airline to the one going out?
2. Will we be able to collect our bags or will the airline automatically transfer them to the connecting flight? Being an international flight I guess we would collect them to clear immigration?
