给个摘要:
如果我要从NYC去ORD,直接定NYC-ORD票价约$200. 但我定NYC-ORD-LAX的化,票价只有$120.所以我可以定NYC-LAX这张票,然后直接在ORD下飞机...省钱. 缺点是无法托运行李,而且有可能被黑名单.



转自纽约时报,原文如下
Air travel remains a necessity, even as it gets ever more expensive. First, the cost of flights, which fell throughout most of the 2000s relative to inflation, is climbing once again thanks to higher fuel prices. And then there are the added fees for everything from checked baggage to those vile croissanwiches.

Well, there’s a way to save some of that money. It’s called “hidden-city ticketing,” but before I explain how to execute the maneuver, you’re going to need some background. Passengers flying to or from airports that are dominated by a single carrier — like Memphis, Newark or Dallas/Fort Worth — pay fares 20 or 30 percent higher than at non-hub airports. The prices are even more inflated when you’re flying from a smaller city with a limited number of flights. A nonstop one-way ticket from Des Moines to Dallas/Fort Worth is $375 on American Airlines, for example — more than the $335 Delta will charge you to fly from Miami to Anchorage.        
But what happens when you’re interested in flying American from Des Moines to Los Angeles, which hosts a more competitive airport? That flight is only about half the price ($186), despite its being more than double the distance. Now, here’s the trick: American flights from Des Moines to L.A. have a layover in Dallas. If you want to travel to Dallas, the best way to get a reasonable fare is to book the flight to Los Angeles instead, and simply get off the plane at Dallas.        
Making a habit of this certainly won’t endear you to the airlines. Most of them — the major exception being free-spirited Southwest Airlines — expressly forbid it in their ticketing rules. But those rules don’t carry the force of law, and most travel lawyers say that their recourse is limited. They could probably preclude you from flying with them in the future, but their case for demanding penalties is weak, and the risk of detection is low if you don’t book these kinds of routes more often than a couple of times per carrier per year. Just remember these tips for successfully executing the phantom flight trick:        
1. Look to employ the switcheroo when your final destination is at a hub airport dominated by just one or two carriers, like Atlanta, Cleveland, Salt Lake City, Charlotte, Detroit, Cincinnati or Chicago O’Hare, all of which have overpriced tickets.        
2. When you’re traveling to one of those cities, you should search for phantom flights into airports that are more competitive — New York, Miami, Las Vegas and Boston are good examples. Search engines like Kayak.com will allow you to select your routing through your desired layover airport.        
3. Book your itinerary as a set of two one-way flights, rather than as a round trip. If you miss any segment of your itinerary, the airline will usually cancel the rest of it.        
4. Don’t check your bags, because they’ll find their way to the final destination listed on your itinerary. And get to your gate early, lest the overhead bins fill up.        
5. Don’t lie if you get caught — travel lawyers agree that misstating your intentions could leave you facing fraud charges. Instead, proudly state that you’re doing your part to help the airlines understand the inefficiencies in their pricing structures, and that you’re bringing exorbitant fares more in line with the free market.        
All of the fares are based on a kayak.com search for one-way flights on June 15. In each case, the price reflects the cheapest fare for the day on the carrier listed. The search was conducted on April 20.

这种事情大概在5-7年中也就只能玩1-2次 次数频繁 这位施主可能会上No-fly List

几年前乘坐乌鲁木齐飞武汉,经停西安后重新上机,发现少了8人,靠!飞机里外如临大敌,反复折腾,确认这8人没有托运行李等才重新起飞,晚了几个小时,本来就是半夜到武汉,这下变成凌晨,到家时天都快亮了!

对此类人深恶痛绝!不仅上黑名单,还要赔偿!

原因是:当时飞武汉的机票比飞西安便宜!

欧洲的机票经常是往返比单程便宜,很多人都是定往返,只飞去程的。

如果下机的旅客在飞机上遗留了什么东西就会有安全隐患啊,民航不是规定人和行李不能分开么,并且是在这条敏感航线上

很少遇到往返比单程便宜的情况,就算是票价便宜加上税应该也不合算。。。。不过往返票只飞单程是没有问题的,一般往返票得限制就是单程飞过后不改不退

往返只飞单程当然无所谓,因为没有CI。但是经停时跑了就比较麻烦,因为CI后消失可能就有隐患,必须清仓!这也是安全问题
