One-way on a round trip ticket
I’m trying to book a round-the-world trip for my girlfriends mother and piecing this together by buying flights separately for each leg on different airlines. On some legs a round trip ticket is significantly cheaper than a one-way. What are the risks of booking a round trip and not using the return? I hear airlines can come after you for the fare difference. Does this ever happen in reality? Specifically, I’m looking at round trip tickets on Cathay Pacific and Iceland air where we won’t use the return. Any thoughts or advice is much appreciated.
Havent heard about airlines actually clawing back money for not flying the return. I’d advise against adding any frequent flyer numbers to the flights you want to drop.
