No, IIRC you are required to be checked in and on board each flight in succession or the remaining part of your itinerary will be canceled.

I thought that the primary reason why this would not be allowed is security
|Quoting YYZRWY23 (Reply 5):|
Why would security care, you walk up, present a boarding pass for ORD-DCA, yoou go through the checkpoint.
|Quoting Jetplaner (Reply 6):|
But I wonder about delays and such where the passenger leaves before the bag, or vice-versa, and they are on different flights?

But it still doesnt make sense that 2 flights are cheaper then 1...flying from the same airport to the same airport.

For example, BDL-PHL is $500+ while BDL-PHL-anywhere in Florida will be somewhere around 300 (and that's return fare). So you end op with more legs spending lot more fuel, more employees, etc, but it costs less. And then they wonder why they're losing money.
