This question already has an answer here:
I'm looking to book a quick one way trip from nyc to Pittsburgh. The nonstop flights are all around $300. When I try out of Hartford, ct...I get a flight for $150 leaving Hartford with one stop in Newark. When I check the same exact Newark flight...its $300.
My question is...could I book the Hartford-Newark-Pittsburgh flight...but just get dropped off at Newark for the second leg, since I live closer to nyc than Hartford. To save half the price.
Are there any issues or rules against this?
