A few times, to save money, I've flown CLE-DTW-ABE. Basically flew right back over CLE. On the way back I almost always make the "someone give me a parachute" joke.
The itinerary bit me in the a** one time, though, when there was a line of severe thunderstorms just hitting DTW at landing... and of course then they had to move s-l-o-w-l-y eastward until they passed CLE before my connecting flight could depart (it's only a 20 min flight DTW-CLE.)

I was trying to book a flight from London (any airport) to Strasbourg. Air France was the only airline operating to Strasbourg and their website suggested flying from LHR-MAD-CDG and then Strasbourg - three changes of aircraft and a total flying time of 7.5 hours! Now why exactly would I need to go halfway round Europe for this relatively short journey?
