Turnaround connections and misconnects

Thu Feb 08, 2018 6:35 am

I've been searching for some fares for my trip to Germany later this year, and I discovered a reasonable fare on LH/AC that would route me YYZ-MUC, then MUC-DUB-YYZ on the return (with the last leg on AC). However, upon closer look on ITA Matrix, it appears that the ticket is technically on a Toronto-Dublin fare with a weeklong layover in MUC. Thus, if I somehow misconnect at DUB for my flight to YYZ, it would be like missing my return flight. If I just do YYZ-MUC-YYZ, the fare is $300 more expensive as it prices as a Toronto-Munich fare.

I was wondering if that connection at DUB would be protected, since it would still be under the same ticket? Or since it's technically the return leg, would the consequences be different?

Thanks in advance.

I mean, if it's under the same ticket, and you book it through LH or AC, you should be ok.
