    Would a native say this:

    My return flight is set for May 20th but that depends on how things turn out in New York.

    I am not a teacher.

    That works, although I would replace 'that' by 'it all'.

    '…but it all depends on how things turn out in New York.'

    What about this as below,
    My return flight is set for May 20th but it depends on how things turn out in New York.

    Am I wrong?

    Not a teacher.

    Batman, in my opinion, your original with "that" also works.
