Lufthansa Sues Passenger Who Deliberately Missed Flight

Airline sues passenger who skipped last leg of his flight	 	 	 			Lufthansa plane

If you've ever thought about pulling a fast one on an airline by attempting to book a ticket using "hidden city ticketing" you may want to think again. Why is that possibly a big deal?

Lufthansa are believed to be hit harder by the practice than other airlines because numerous company's flights are routed through the hubs of Frankfurt and Munich.

Airlines put a premium on nonstop flights, and "skiplagging" passengers exploit that practice by booking flights with a layover, and then skipping the last leg of the flight. However, the passenger has no intention to ever travel to point C and instead just stops at point B as their final destination.

PM reopens Christmas Island as asylum seeker bill moves through Senate
I think it's a foolish law. "Our government is running border protection in this country". Opposition Leader Bill Shorten sought to send a message to would-be asylum seekers.

The hack works thusly: A direct flight to a specific destination city might hypothetically cost $169, but a flight to a different city that happens to connect in the destination city might be cheaper at $109. This could, in turn, cause airlines to increase pricing on the same routes in the future. You take the first leg, get off the plane in Houston, and sail off with your carry-on luggage safe in the knowledge someone on the New Orleans flight copped a row with an empty seat in it.

Lufthansa has taken a passenger, who didn't show up for the last leg of his ticketed journey, to court in an apparent bid to clamp down on "hidden city" ticketing. So far a court has found in favour of the passenger - but now Lufthansa is appealing.

According to court documents, Lufthansa is seeking payment from the passenger, claiming he or she booked a flight from Oslo to Seattle via Frankfurt, the Daily Mail reports. Rather than take the completing Frankfurt to Oslo leg, he instead took a different Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt to Berlin. It is now seeking $2,385 in compensation.
