Should I cancel my flight or not show up?
If you know you can’t make a scheduled flight, it’s better to cancel your flight rather than be a no-show. If you cancel, you might receive a partial or whole credit for the fare purchased, to be applied to a future flight. But, if you’re a no-show, it’s less likely you’ll be able to recoup any part of the fare.
