    Orbitz and Expedia are making headlines for suing the kid behind the website, Skiplagged.com. They concede that the website hurts their business. The point of the website is to save money on tickets by skipping a lag of the trip. So, say you want to fly to Los Angeles. You could buy a cheaper ticket that has LA as a stopover and just not take the rest of the trip.

    What do you think about the concept of hidden cities?

    I've just taken a look at Skiplagged.com and the website looks like a fight search engine.....maybe that's why they're suing them. Still, I don't know how this hidden city thing could ever work now because airliners report passengers to authorities who do not complete all the legs of their flights. Way too much hassle...

    Sounds to me as if Orbitz and Expedia cannot face the fact that their search engine flights do not give the best deals for people. I hear the guy running the site is 22-years of age..
