The " legality " of throw-away ticketing is murky. Whether “ hacking ” a game is legal or not depends on where you live and what the laws say about it. So you need to find out what the local laws are for the land you live in, and it can get rather complicated, because law typically lags behind

Lufthansa just billed a customer $2,300 to cover what it claimed the customer owed for a trip he had already taken and paid $780 for in full. Why? The customer who lived in Frankfurt had bought a round-trip ticket from Oslo to Seattle, with Frankfurt connections. He paid the published Oslo-Seattle fare of $780. To take the trip, he bought a cheap ticket from Frankfurt to Oslo, and then took both outbound connecting flights. On his return, however, he did not take the Frankfurt-Oslo connection and instead remained in Frankfurt. And Lufthansa said that because he didn't return to Oslo, he owed Lufthansa the published fare of $3,080 for a round trip from Frankfurt to Seattle.

This is an example of a longstanding ticketing hack variously described as skiplag, point-beyond, hidden-city, or throw-away ticketing. The basic idea is simple: Sometimes the nonstop airfare to a traveler's intended destination is higher than the one-stop fare to a second city, beyond the first, on flights that connect at the intended city. In that case, a traveler heading to the intended city buys the connecting fare to the second city and just doesn't take the connecting flight.

Another form of throw-away ticketing has become scarcer. Formerly, on many routes, one-way tickets cost more than round-trip tickets. So a traveler could cut costs by buying a round-trip and not taking the return. When the cheapest round-trips required a Saturday night stay, travelers could buy two round-trip tickets for a short trip, one starting at each end of the trip, and throw away both returns. These opportunities have been cut dramatically as low-fare airlines introduced one-way ticket pricing throughout much of the nation.

How I Mixed Up Airline Ticketing Rules — Reader Mistake Story

How I Mixed Up Airline Ticketing Rules — Reader Mistake Story Today, I want to share a story from TPG reader Shray, who spent a long day at the airport after attempting to fly standby: For the Thanksgiving holiday, I booked a trip home to Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) on American Airlines with British Airways Avios. I booked the ticket in September, and double checked the syllabus to …

Lufthansa's move is just the latest in a series of occasional airline attempts to stop travelers from using the throw-away ticketing gimmick to cut trip costs dramatically. In 2018, United threatened a passenger with going to a collection agency and/or canceling his frequent flyer credit and status unless he paid a $3,000 fare difference. Over the other years, other airlines have done the same. Threats include confiscation of frequent flyer miles.

The "legality" of throw-away ticketing is murky. All legacy-line contracts of carriage specifically prohibit throw-away ticketing, and airlines claim that travelers who use those tickets violate their contracts with the airlines. But, at least as far as I can tell, the hacks are not illegal, in a criminal sense. Airlines have threatened travelers with collections and other forms of coercion, and they have successfully claimed payments from travel agents that issued throw-away tickets. But I know of no criminal prosecutions that have been initiated against individual travelers.

Cathay Sells $16,000 Premium Seats for $675 in Ticketing Blunder

Cathay Sells $16,000 Premium Seats for $675 in Ticketing Blunder All eyes are on Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. as it decides what to do with the tickets that it appeared to have sold in error at a fraction of their prices. Asia’s biggest international carrier sold business-class tickets from Vietnam to Canada and the U.S. at economy prices earlier this week, according to bloggers. Return fares in the premium cabin from Da Nang to New York started at $675 for travel in August, Gary Leff, a travel and loyalty-program blogger on View from the Wing, wrote on Dec. 31.

“ Hacking ” actually isn’t defined, “ legal ” and “illegal” are, so if what you’re doing is against the law it’s illegal. If there’s no law addressing any part of it, it’s not. If by “ hacking ” you mean “getting access to computers you are not supposed to have access to”, then it’s illegal under current law unless you’re

Another hack that hasn't seen as much publicity is the throw-away land package. In some cases, airlines sell air-hotel packages for less than the lowest airfare, using "tour basing" fares that are lower than any simple airfare. So you can buy an air-hotel package, select the cheapest hotel available, and throw away the hotel voucher. Or you can even find a good hotel option and use it, paying less than the lowest airfare and room rate separately. This has been going on since before deregulation, with full airline connivance: I remember TWA packages to London years ago that included one night in a Scottish guesthouse for considerably less than London tickets alone.

If you're considering a point-beyond ticket, you need to know the risks:

-- You can't use point-beyond for most round-trip travel: As soon as you miss a connecting flight on the outbound leg of your trip, the airline cancels the rest of your ticket, including all return flights. The only round-trip on which it works is one where you miss the last connection on your return trip.

-- You can't check baggage on a point-beyond ticket. In most cases, airlines will not check bags just to a connecting airport.

-- You run a minor risk of re-routing through a different connecting city.

-- With any throw-away ticket, the airline may pressure you to pay the difference.

If, despite the risk, you're looking for point-beyond opportunities, skiplagged.com searches for options on any route you enter.
