    is it ok, please?

    I'm afraid of changing my flight and you end up not being able to come.

    thanks.

    Is this the situation?

    You are thinking of changing your flight to accommodate someone else's schedule, but you are hesitant to do so, because there is a good chance the other person will cancel at the last minute and all your trouble will have been for nothing.

    If so:

    I hesitate to change my flight, because I worry that at the last minute you will find you cannot make the trip after all.

    How does that sound?

    yes, that's the context.
    do you think my sentence isn't clear enough?
    I'm looking for a short sentence.
    thanks.

    Dear jctgf:

    How about

    I'm afraid of changing my flight and you ending up not being able to come.

    It's a bit awkward, but it will be understood!
