Couldn't think of a better title..... i am planning on going to New York on Friday from Tampa and there was a flight with Delta for $230 (single) to JFK. I then looked at flights to Philadelphia (and then a bus or train onto NYC) and found a Delta flight for $127 that I would have to change at JFK to catch another flight to Philly. This is the same flight that costs $230 from Tampa just to JFK! So can I buy the ticket to Philly and instead of changing at JFK I simply get off at JFK and leave the airport, forfeiting the onward flight to Philly? I will only have a small carry on bag.
