@FDOS, as you well know, the airline could price a 3 sector trip more than a 4 sector trip, so if you drop the last sector, it could be argued that you intended defrauding the airline, by purposely skipping the last sector.

As we also know, this has not, as far as we know been tested in the courts.

Martyn, that is not the definition of a loss. Ask Travelworld. Next time you pass Burger King or McDonald’s, ask them if it’s okay to buy a meal deal and throw the chips away or do you have to eat it all:-)

There is a reason it hasn’t been tested 😉

Also, BA have been known to sanction travel agents and send them a debit memo (ADM) for persistently issuing tickets to pax who drop the last leg, but I am not aware that they have tried to claim form a pax – I wonder why?
