- Why don't airlines like it when one intentionally misses a flight to save money?
Are they both grammatically correct, and if so, are they synonymous?

As a native British English speaker, the second option reads naturally, but the first sounds incorrect. I'd be left thinking 'why don't airlines like what, when one intentionally misses...'
When using the first person, both options would probably be heard in everyday speech, but it would still be more natural to say 'I like it when'.
Did you ever find an answer to the question?!
