Can book the hidden cities here: http://bookwithmatrix.com

If you are doing a hidden city ticket, get to the gate early, or at least on time. You don't want them to run out of overhead space and check your bag all the way to your "final destination. if they insist you check the carry on in tell them you have medication, if it still doesnt work then dump the carry on & put everything in shopping bags"

You can use this link to copy and paste select routes.

In other news, i recently did a hc, Mia-Ord-Tus in F, with Tus. being the throwaway leg. got a $200 refund for Ord-Tus being delayed an hour :) :D
Did you ask for compensation? Had the same thing JAX-EWR-PIT. The last leg was delayed, I thought asking for compensation would be pushing it.

U should be able to ask for compensation + ask 2 drop last leg + get reward credits for all legs.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

Want to do hidden city with infant. Want to bring Doona to gate, will they make me check it in all the way thru or will they give it me by the stop because I "need" it for the airport to get to my next flight?
(also if not full flight sometimes they will give me extra seat)

Has anyone ever gotten back their bags at the first stop if they were forced to check hand luggage on a hidden city

Once in a while gate check baggage comes up on the stop at the gate. 99.9% of the time it will go to the final destination. If they put a tag on it, it will have the destination listed. If nothing listed on the luggage, it usually come out at the stop.

Just wanted to share a recent experience. Feel free to flame me if you think I handled anything wrong; I did a bunch of research and asked in a bunch of forums prior to travel, and nobody warned me about what eventually happened. I specifically asked if IST as a hidden city ticket was sketchy, and everyone reacted like I was being a nervous nellie.

Anyway, I booked a flight for my wife in J on AF, by doing hidden city with IST as the final destination, it was 1/2 the points than they wanted for the flight just to CDG. I was going to be in the back with my kids.

Check in wasn't a problem. AF wanted to know her plan for a visa, but she told them she'd get one in the airport, and they let her go.

At the gate, she was called to the jetway by the gate agent, where she was met by two home land security agents. They proceeded to rifle through her luggage while they interrogated her for over 20 minutes, until the entire plane had boarded. They thought it was suspicious she was traveling to Istanbul alone, as a single woman, especially with her family traveling to a different destination. She mentioned a colleague from IST that had told her how nice it was there, and they promptly demanded that person's contact info as well as her sister's contact info at our final destination.

Anyway, eventually they let her on the plane and did not tip of AF. I know she probably should have just told them she was never intending to actually go to IST, but she was concerned they would tell AF and AF would keep her off the plane, and so she got nervous.

I'm not telling this story for any feedback, just a word of warning to be careful which hidden city tickets you end up targeting, as not every city is the same apparently (doubt this would have happened if it said she was going to Dublin).

That reminds me, they specifically asked her if she was continuing on to Syria, despite her showing them her further itinerary to Israel.

They thought it was suspicious she was traveling to Istanbul alone, as a single woman, especially with her family traveling to a different destination. She mentioned a colleague from IST that had told her how nice it was there, and they promptly demanded that person's contact info as well as her sister's contact info at our final destination.

Anyway, eventually they let her on the plane and did not tip of AF. I know she probably should have just told them she was never intending to actually go to IST, but she was concerned they would tell AF and AF would keep her off the plane, and so she got nervous.

I'm not telling this story for any feedback, just a word of warning to be careful which hidden city tickets you end up targeting, as not every city is the same apparently (doubt this would have happened if it said she was going to Dublin).


Cool story, with happy ending.

You always need to play if your going to final destination.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

Thanks for sharing.
I think what's important when flying with a hidden city, is to differentiate between the different people along the questions.
Normally law enforcement shouldn't have any business with the airlines.
Obviously, pigs exist...

Exactly, we didn't gameplan for that as it was unexpected. Purpose of this post was to make others thinking of a HC itinerary take that issue into account.
