It costs 107$ to fly from CMH to YYZ making a connection in CLE where i live. But to fly from CLE-YYZ it is around 200$. strange. 90 bucks is worth a 2 hour drive i think. Now i just have to covince the other travelers of that. WE could play the hidden city trick but why would I? I love planes !!! -che (hope that fare lasts)

Yes, you dont get on at your "orgin" of your original ticket, then you are taken out of the computers and if you try to get on at your connection, you can't b/c it shows that you were not at your first flight, and now you have to pay EVEN MORE to get the flight from your connection to your "final destination." Or so I think...
Lets say there is a flight which goes Delhi-LHR-Rome. The Delhi-Rome fare will be lower than Delhi-LHR, since it is calculated on SLD.
Then some routes offer PP fares. For eg. Lets suppose, i book a seat on a flight from Madras-Delhi and onwards from Delhi-LHR on a connecting flight, i dont pay the full fare for the 2 flights. The fare is only marginally higher than Madras-LHR direct, and the symbol PP is stamped on your ticket.
