British Airways to act tough on fliers travelling on hidden-city tickets

British Airways has taken the case of hidden-city or throwaway ticketing head on vowing to act tough in such cases. Fliers purchase tickets with plans to fly only a portion of an itinerary and this is referred to as hidden-city or throwaway ticketing. For many years, savvy flyers have been using this trick to save money.

 

British Airways joins United Airlines in this fight. Although hidden-city ticketing has been around for quite a long time, little was done besides canceling the rest of the itinerary when fliers didn’t show up. But now the consequences could be changing.

 

Recently United and Orbitz filed a lawsuit against Skiplagged.com, a website that gives fliers the chance to exploit hidden-city ticketing.

 

If British Airways does indeed come after fliers skirting the system and succeed, other airlines are likely to follow suit.
