American Airlines is suing Skiplagged Inc. in federal court in Fort Worth, Texas, this week, accusing the website of deception. It threatened to cancel every ticket that Skiplagged has sold. In a practice called skip-lagging and hidden-city ticketing, travellers book a flight that includes at least one stop, but they leave the plane during a layover. Generally skip-lagging is not illegal, but airlines claim that it violates their policies.
