You mean even the return trip? My point was that if you skip the last segment, there's nothing left to cancel. But obviously skipping the first segment gets the whole trip cancelled, but I don't think it means the return trip is cancelled.

OP, just fly in and out of DEN. Flights are significantly cheaper
People keep saying this but the OP specifically says the flights they're looking at are cheaper flying into CoS Airport. If Denver were cheaper in this particular case, it probably wouldn't even be a question.

Depending on where you are in Littleton, you'll either take 225 (which is God awful) or the tollway (add another $11 to take it). I think traffic wise, depending on the time of day, the commute from COS might be less hassle too.

225 can be god awful during rush hour, but is fine most of the time. I take it to the airport all the time during non rush hour drives and it is wide open.

If any leg is skipped, the rest of the itinerary is cancelled.

Missed that CoS is cheaper. Weird since it's usually more expensive from when I've planned trips, but I'm flying to and from Chicago which has a lot more competition to Denver than CoS

Be sure to also compare the rental car rates. Prices at DIA can be crazy sometimes. I have no idea of the cost in Co Springs, tho.

OP, just fly in and out of DEN. Flights are significantly cheaper and assuming since you're from Eastern NC I assume you'll be flying from some regional airport or RDU, COS is only served via DFW, ORD, DEN, ATL, and IAH, east of the Rockies so you'll have some connection to get to COS, if not two connections.


Non-stop flights from Eastern NC to Denver include: CLT, RDU and Norfolk, VA, so why not just fly directly to Denver than deal with the hassle of connecting, waiting for another flight etc.

COS only really makes sense if you live in the Springs or Pueblo and can catch a non-stop to where you're flying to/from or if DEN doesn't have a flight to where you want (such as Paris or Amsterdam) where you'll have to connect through ORD/ATL/IAH/DFW anyways.
You can add Richmond, Virginia to the list since United had recently started a non-stop service between that city and Denver.

New Bern. RDU is about 2 1/2 to 3 hours away. I like the fact that it is a small airport and I live only 15 minutes away.

Since Frontier announced their return to COS (which I believe started this week) fares have been dropping rapidly. That's probably why you're seeing cheaper fares here.
