Skipping the last leg of a flight?
So going to Japan soon, and if anyone saw my previous PR thread, I am thinking of getting off in YVR airport on the way home instead of going all the way back to YYC. My flight does a connection through YVR, and I have flown this many times, and I know despite what they put on the tags, you have to pickup your bags and drop them off again. I am flying with ANA/Air Canada and it would make more sense for me to get out in YVR, get a rental car, and drive the rest of the way after picking up my wife in Seattle. Anyone done this? Any issues? Should I tell the airline ahead of time, or at all? Also, I believe despite having to pickup and dropoff your luggage at YVR, I think the sticker in Japan will still say YYC as the final destination. Any issues with me having this luggage going through customs when it will say YYC on it?
