Why is it cheaper to fly to DC than to fly out of DC?
Yeah, the airlines used to play that game with us. You could actually buy two round trip air tickets that were over the weekend cheaper than one round trip during the week. What the travel agent would do was buy the two cheap tickets, and you would use the return flight on the first set of tickets to get there, and the outgoing flight on the second set to get home. It worked for years, until the airlines wised up and cancelled your whole trip if you didn’t use the tickets in the right sequence…..
