Have you ever searched for an airfare and found what appears to be a great deal, only to find that the airfare committed what could be considered a “bait and switch” tactic and did not include taxes and fees until just before you were ready to pay for it? Those days should be gone, as a new rule is…
Airline fare logic is crazy (see if airlines sold paint), so when someone buys a ticket for A to C intending to get off at B en route because A-C fare is cheaper than A-B, that is called hidden city ticketing. What do you do if the airline catches you in the act of saving money in this way? Join the healthy discussion of the ethics and legality of hidden city ticketing.
…and your stomach drops along with the airfare.
One can imagine that that is exactly how FlyerTalk member g1ant felt after the round-trip airfare between Manchester and Austin that was just purchased six hours earlier decreased by US$358.00.
Ouch. I know that feeling. That has to hurt.
g1ant asks for advice from fellow FlyerTalk members in the Yicket price drops by over $150 6 hours after booking. Any recourse? thread.
