United and Orbitz are Suing a 22-year-old Who Exposed Cheap Airfare Hack

United Airlines and Orbitz are suing a 22-year-old website founder who has made it easier for travelers to find "hidden city" tickets, which can offer big discounts on airfares. "Hidden city" ticketing is the practice of booking a one-way plane ticket from one city to another, and then getting off the plane on a layover before the final destination. It may seem counterintuitive, but booking the longer flight can sometimes be cheaper because of the convoluted mess that is airline pricing. It's not illegal — but that doesn't mean airlines and booking sites want people to do it.
