What happens more often is that its cheaper to fly to a layover spot without 
making the next leg. So say for instance I really wanted to go to Charlotte, 
sometimes its cheaper to book a flight to Miami through Charlotte than it is to 
go to Charlotte. So people just stop at the mid-point. Obviously you can only 
do it if you carry on your bags otherwise they end up in Miami...
Airlines are super cracking down on that now, I don't understand why though, 
its cheaper for them to not fly me that second leg...

 Just booked a set of tix to go to Italy later this year.  Tix were $573,
flying from Miami FL to Rome, with a layover in Charlotte each way.

Flights are all on AA.

Miami is about a ten-hour drive from my house.  Charlotte is about five
hours.

If I try to book the flight from Charlotte, and skip the jump from MIA to
CLT, the cost of the tix is about 3x.

I wonder what would happen if we just show up in CLT on the travel day, and
try to get on the second leg from CLT to FCO?  AA will probably pitch a fit
and deny boarding.
