Flash, depending on when it happened, it could just have been the typical airline silliness.

In 2004, I was working a contract gig in Norwalk CT.  When it suddenly became time to fly home, I had a choice: I could drive to JFK, drop the rental car for free, and pay $1000 to fly home on American or Delta, or I could drive a couple of hours up to Hartford, pay $250 to drop the rental car and pay another $250 to fly home on Southwest.

It was not a difficult decision.  It was a nice, educational drive.  I was already 40 miles out of NYC.  It took another 60 miles to get out of the morning NYC commuter traffic.  Luckily, they were all going the other way.
