A brief airline rant:

Why is it that a flight from Tallahassee, FL going to Atlanta, GA costs twice what a flight to Washington D.C. costs for the same days and time given that the flight to D.C. stops in Atlanta?

That's right-- a flight that connects in Atlanta cost half what the flight to Atlanta costs on its own.

Remember this when Delta wants a bailout...

Ignore the man behind the curtain and just take your lumps with the rest of us. :-)

I used to work for an airline. I hate to say it, but there is a valid business reason for this type of thing. The trouble is, the story is waay to long for a mere mortal to endure.

Oh, we'd be more than happy to endure such a long, and no doubt, tall, tale. ;-)

Valid business reason does not equal "makes coherent sense".

why wouldn't you just buy the dc ticket, then "miss" your connecting flight?
