Upcoming trip airline travel question
May 14, 2014 4:59 PM Subscribe
I have an upcoming trip to and from Chapel Hill, NC. While there, we will be traveling to the Washington DC area. My return flight leaves RDU, near Chapel Hill and routes through IAD, Dulles, at DC.
Skipping the flight from RDU would save about four hours of driving back to North Carolina and realistically provide another full day in the DC area. Can I do this? If so, what are the restrictions and gotchas? Can I roll the RDU-IAD flight revenue over into a seat upgrade?
Personal experiences with trying to do this welcome. Direct experience from airline and travel pros also welcome. Speculative answers less welcome. Thanks very much!

After trying to reach a real human at the issuing agency, American Express travel, and the airline, United, for an upcoming trip and in each case failing with an expected wait time in excess of an hour, I thought, what the hell? AskMe might actually increase my data on the subject.
