I recall from the lawsuit airlines cannot force you to pay or finish the leg of the trip. However you can get flagged for it (no idea how that impacts future travel)

It’s not fraudulent but they can ban you and cancel all of your points.

Did you?

Just tell them you had chipotle and it was pretty explosive

Def advise against it. Best case scenario, you book two one-way flights and have a cheaper flight. Likelier case, you’ll have trouble booking in the future and will get booted from the AAdvantage program.

Used Skiplagged to book a United flight. Hidden city on a one way saved $300 per person, so was worth it. I know conventional wisdom is to not connect to MileagePlus, but it should be fine if it's just one time, right? Seems like I could just say someone in my party felt sick so we missed second leg.

Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move.

I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂

Anyone following this gabby petito case?

The entire situation is a true mirror of how flawed our law enforcement system is to deal with crisis situations or DV disturbances.
