One Way FaresBack to Forum
Anonymous28 Aug 2011
I remember reading a Forum debate some time ago but since then I’ve failed to find it. We want 2 business class single fares to Vancouver next year and the fares are just criminal – remind me, what is the justification for charging us for the return seats we will not use and is there anything at all we can do to avoid/circumvent the ‘rules’. All advice gratefully received.

not really any way around it, airlines HATE one ways. in some cases a one way is more expensive than a return (at least on long haul international flights). i work around would be to cruise from UK to New York on Cunard and the fly NYC to YVR28 Aug 2011
This was the topic you were looking for: –
If the return is cheaper than the one way, then simply buy it to save money, and don’t use the return.28 Aug 2011
Miles and more allow one way flights for 50% of the miles. They also allow companion ticket for 50% though not sure if this is allowed for single tickets. So if you have the miles and the status, maybe this is the solution.28 Aug 2011
Janbeegee – are you departing London ?
If so you might find a better value one-way price by opting for an indirect routing rather than a non-stop service with BA/AC.28 Aug 2011
