Update to the Scalia/Throwaway Ticketing story. I’m told that Scalia did indeed fly New Orleans-Washington National non-stop on USAirways, and USAirways’ Contract of Carriage clearly prohibits the practice of throwaway ticketing.
Now that Justice Scalia’s cirumvention of fare rules is public knowledge, will USAirways go after the Supreme Court Justice for the difference in fare? I’m guessing not.
I bet that if the hidden city ticketing class action suit returns to the Supreme Court, there’ll be another request for Scalia to recuse himself.
