    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 YVR


    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.


    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.


    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.
