That's correct. This has to do with market competition. I.e. Airlines want to offer City A to City C, but can only do that with multiple flights. Consumers are less inclined towards multiple flights unless it offers them savings.

Consumers can actually save lots of money. That's generally frowned upon by for-profit corporations. What Skiplagged does is definitely not illegal, which is why this is not a criminal case.

$25.62 for a regular trip from Seattle to Orlando. This was actually just a huge pricing mistake by Delta that affected many routes earlier this year, that they honored. Skiplagged picked this up automatically faster than any other website and actually made it to the WSJ.
