Probably because of people vacationing/escaping to warm weather post holiday stress

Buy a "hidden city" ticket to reduce the cost.

@PWC1 1. Buy a ticket with a connection in the city that you really want to go to 2. After you arrive at connection city (leave) don't board remaining leg(s). Note: typically only works with one-ways and won't work if you checked a bag

what's a hidden city ticket?

Nothing warm about LA right now. Burrr🌬

and a great way to lose status

@ACN3 you obviously can't do it every week. I do it a couple times a year. Especially for non-billable travel.

Good point about tourist travel. Had to give in and buy the tickets. Hope my client understands...
