    Lufthansa Sues Passenger Who Missed His Flight in Bid To Clamp Down on 'Hidden City Trick'

    https://yro.slashdot.org/story/19/02...den-city-trick

    Airline Lufthansa has sued a passenger, who didn't show up for the last leg of his ticketed journey, in an apparent bid to clamp down on "hidden city" trick. From a report:

    The practice involves passengers leaving their journey at a layover point, instead of making a final connection. For instance, someone flying from New York to San Francisco could book a cheaper trip from New York to Lake Tahoe with a layover in San Francisco and get off there, without bothering to take the last leg of the flight. According to a court document, an unnamed male passenger booked a return flight from Oslo to Seattle, which had a layover in Frankfurt. The passenger used all legs of the outbound flight, but did not catch the Frankfurt to Oslo return flight. He instead flew on a separate Lufthansa reservation from Frankfurt to Berlin.

    The report adds that a Berlin district court dismissed the case in December last year, but the airline company is now appealing that verdict. Worth noting here that United Airlines has also tried its luck on this front -- to no dice.
    Do you think that is right? Maybe charge reasonable rates and they wont provoke customers to do this?

    They haven't got a leg to stand on, they sold him something and he chose not to use all of it.

    It's their problem if their price structure allows this.

    The real Lufthansa Heist was Dec 11 1978 at JFK by Jimmy Burkes crew . Angelo Sepe was later identified as one of the gunman in a lineup . Stacks Edwards prints later found on the wheel of the getaway van he left parked in a no parking zone near his squeeze's apt . while he got drunk and high . 5.875 million was stolen including 5 million in cash . Even though Burke had many of his crew killed which limited the people they could interview they still had 6 informants used in the trials counting Henry Hill .

    Once you purchase a ticket and enter an airport, you are a prisoner, so obviously you can’t be allowed to just walk off. It’s probably better to think of yourself as a government prisoner, and the airline is a contract jailer.
