    Has anyone heard about this?

    Skiplagged.com is a website that finds flyers insanely cheap deals by taking advantage of hidden city ticketing. This means that if you want to fly from New York to Seattle it would cost (making numbers up) $300, but a ticket from New York to Los Angeles with a stopover in Seattle would only cost $200, so if you're not checking your luggage you can just grab your bags, yell "fuck you airlines" and save yourself $100 by getting off at Seattle and enjoying your vacation while the airlines are frantically paging you for the next flight.

    Skiplagged is also being sued by the airlines.

    I'm backing the airlines, it's an unprofitable industry enough as is without these fools gaming the system.
