Robert Laney has been regarded as a top authority on airline deception and airfare trickery for over three decades. At age 19, Laney was recruited by airlines and private investors to dispose of unsold premium cabin seats while avoiding cannibalization. In 1998, Laney launched the world's first on-line booking site offering first class discounts built on airfare trickery, combining hidden city tickets with contract fares. In 2002, the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) named Laney one of their Faces of the Future, awarded to travel industry leaders under the age of 30. Laney has been a frequent contributor to the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the International Herald Tribune and has been referred to as one of the "fathers of hidden city tickets". In 2018, Laney published Involuntary Reroute, a memoir of his experiences with airlines while attending Babson College, turning an idea into an international enterprise.
