One way long haul tickets
Hi all, I am currently putting together a multi city trip using a mixture of avios and flying club. It seems London is unavoidable in my itinerary and the departure taxes take away from the value of using miles.
Is there a site out there that allows you buy long haul one way tickets? I do not want to return to London and one ways are more expensive than round trips generally speaking. I can reduce the charges by originating in DUB and going via LHR but would like to price saving the miles and paying cash.
[USER=1477]@Mark Schutz[/USER] I’m not quite sure I’m understanding the question. You can buy one-way tickets on practically any search engine or airline website. You can also cut down on the taxes by flying out of say Paris and transiting through LHR instead of originating there.
This post might help:
Agreed but the pricing is always very high and round trips are nearly always much cheaper. An exemption being Norwegian price differently
I THINK what he is try to ask if there any booking engines that will sell him discount fare ticket on one ways rather than flexible tickets. There are none that I know off
He is using Norwegian as an example since they will sell LGW-JFK as a one-way for the same price/booking class as the first segment on a R/T ticket LGW-JFK-LGW.
As far as I know Norwegian is the only airline with that model for selling long haul tickets. It’s a model mostly used by LCC’s on short haul flight and not something that the big network airlines do.
