Ashley's Story: from Fox News, United Airlines An Airline company sues 22-year-old who found method for buying cheaper plane tickets

NEW YORK - A young computer whiz from New York City has launched a site to help people buy cheap plane tickets. But an airline company and its travel partner want to shut him down.

United Airlines and Orbitz filed a civil lawsuit last month against 22-year-old Aktarer Zaman, who founded the website Skiplagged.com last year.
The site helps travelers find cheap flights by using a strategy called "hidden city" ticketing.
The idea is that you buy an airline ticket that has a layover at your actual destination. Say you want to fly from New York to San Francisco - you actually book a flight from New York to Lake Tahoe with a layover in San Francisco and get off there, without bothering to take the last leg of the flight.
This travel strategy only works if you book a one-way flight with no checked bags (they would have landed in Lake Tahoe).
It's not like these tickets are the cheapest all the time, but they often are.
In the lawsuit, United and Orbitz call Skiplagged "unfair competition" and allege that it is promoting "strictly prohibited" travel. They want to recoup $75,000 in lost revenue from Zaman.
Zaman said he knew a lawsuit was inevitable but he points out that there's nothing illegal about his web site.
He also said he has made no profit via the website and that all he's done is help travelers get the best prices by exposing an "inefficiency," in airline prices that insiders have known about for decades.
"[Hidden city ticketing] have been around for a while, it just hasn't been very accessible to consumers," Zaman told CNNMoney.
"
Indeed, "hidden city," ticketing is no secret among frequent fliers, said Michael Boyd, President of Boyd Group International, an aviation consulting firm in Evergreen, Co. Boyd worked as an American Airline ticket agent 30 years ago, and says he was trained at the airline to help customers find "hidden city" fares.
"I don't think it's illegal what he's doing," Boyd said. But lawsuits are expensive and it could end up costing the young entrepreneur who has irked the two billion dollar corporations.
Airlines usually offer cheaper fares for some destinations that are not regional hubs, Boyd said. Many of these flights are routed through more popular destinations. But if a lot of people take advantage of that discrepancy it could hurt the airlines, which is why they want to shut him down.
Born in Bangladesh, Zaman grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., and graduated with a bachelor's degree in computer science at age 20 from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He lives in Manhattan and works at a technology start-up that he declined to name.
Zaman said Skiplagged is just a "side project."
Zaman and United declined to discuss the lawsuit. Orbitz said in a statement that it is obligated to uphold airline fare rules.
Other travel experts say that the airlines may not achieve much if Zaman's site is shut down, especially in a world where information is becoming more readily available.
"If [Skiplagged is] shut down, undoubtedly there will be other people to come along to scrape fares and make them available," Robert Mann said, president of R.W. Mann & Company, an airline consulting firm in Port Washington, New York.

Steve's Story: from the Mirror, Ginger cat Garfield went missing SEVEN years ago - now he's back home

A cat has been reunited with his owner after going missing SEVEN years ago.
Nine-year-old Garfield is back with owner Julie Calder, from Rumney, Cardiff, after he disappeared from her home.
Then, in December 2012, Garfield turned up at a house in St Mellons - the same area as his original home.
Mistaking him for a stray, a lady looked after him for two years before taking him to Cats Protection's Bridgend Adoption Centre when she could no longer care for him.
The centre scanned Garfield for a microchip and though it showed up an old address, the centre did a bit of extra detective work and managed to track down Julie, who had moved to Rumney.
Julie collected Garfield from the centre yesterday in an emotional reunion.

She said: "I am over the moon to have Garfield back home.
"I never stopped thinking about him and wondering where he was. He is going to be very spoilt now."
Centre manager Sue Dobbs said: "Julie just picked him up, something we haven't been able to do, and he proceeded to lick her face."

Part Two: Theme Talk Thursdays
On Thursdays we've got Theme Talk Thursdays where we go over something that has one common thread. (New Year)






Part Two: Theme Talk Thursdays (1)

How late do YOU stay up till on New Year's Eve? (Audrey)

Love it or hate it, most of us feel compelled to count in the New Year at midnight, whether celebrating at a party or freezing outside watching fireworks.

But while the average Briton calls it a night at 01:38am, people in Russia party through the night and stay up the latest in the world, according to data gathered from hundreds of thousands of Jawbone Up wearers.
Over the past year, wearers of the fitness tracker has recorded their every movement - including their sleeping patterns - to provide fresh insight into how the world celebrates New Year.

People in Russia stay up the latest on December 31, while those in China and Iran turn in early, because they celebrate New Year on another night.

After Russia, it was followed by people in the Ukraine and Argentina.

In Russia, New Year's Eve is a 'super-holiday' where Christmas and the night of celebrations is combined.
Familiar Christmas traditions such as exchanging gifts, visiting family, telling children about Santa Claus - who is known as Father Frost - and decorating trees are combined with New Year's revelry and celebrated on the first of January.


Similarly, the research found that most cities in South America and continental Europe stayed awake into the small hours.

Of course, in Argentina, Chile and Brazil, the celebrations fall in the summer, allowing many people to party on the beach.

In contrast, people in China and Israel were asleep last year earlier than other countries, probably because their New Year's traditions, which stretch back thousands of years, are celebrated on different days.

A total of 88 per cent of Britons wearing Jawbone activity tracking bands stayed awake past midnight last year, with the average Londoner going to bed at 2am and waking up at 9.36am on New Year's Day.

Around three in 10 Americans skipped the midnight countdown last year in favour of catching some extra shut-eye.

Jawbone's data revealed that the west coast goes to bed particularly early, typically three hours after the ball has dropped in Times Square and 19 hours after the first fireworks in Sydney.

It has been suggested that people living in Los Angeles prefer an alternative tradition: the Rose Parade, which begins at 8am on New Year's Day.

Almost 48 per cent of Jawbone wearers in Pasadena - a southern Californian town - were asleep by midnight, for example.
But not all cities in the US go to bed so early, with people in New York and Miami partying hard into the night.

Unique New Year's Traditions from Around the World (Anthony)

One Filipino tradition is to wear polka dots on New Year's Eve, because round objects signify prosperity.
Another is turning on all the lights in the house on New Year's Eve to ward off evil spirits. They open all the doors, cabinets, and windows and then run around shutting them after it hits midnight.

Mexico & Colombia
In countries like Mexico and Colombia, some people carry suitcases around the block as a way of welcoming new and exciting travels in the upcoming year.
Belarus
The unmarried women of Belarus participate in some games of skill to predict who will end up married within the next year. For example, one game involves piles of corn and a rooster; whichever woman the rooster approaches first is considered to be the first to marry.
Germany
Rather like the reading of tea leaves, one German New Year's Eve Tradition involves lead pouring, in which molten metal is poured into cold water, and whatever shape you end up with when it's cooled down is a symbol of what's to come for the new year.
Denmark
Denmark on New Year's Eve might be the only time you can smash your plates and not get anyone angry at you for it. But you're not throwing the plates in your own house, you're going to the homes of your friends and throwing plates at their doors to show how much you value them as a friend.
Greece
Similar to a Mardi Gras trend, in Greece they bake a coin into a cake and whichever person has the coin in their slice is considered to have a lucky new year.
