I am returning to the USA to live after three years here, and thought that I would be able to find a cheap one-way flight as I do not need the return. Curiously, return flights seem to be cheaper than one way. Does anyone have any alternative ideas or sites that might find me a cheap one way flight? Thanks in advance!

    I moved to the US a month ago. Single ticket was £660. Return was £289.
    I booked the return and just no showed for the return flight. Heard nothing more from the airline.

    Many carriers reserve the right to charge you extra in the event of a 'no-show' for a flight.

    Ignore this!

    From reading here I understand it happens on cross channel ferries but it is not the case on airlines.

    Yep.

    I've done this and had no comeback from the airline. I believe that the airlines do reserve the right to charge you for a one way fare if they believe you've thrown away the return portion of your ticket however, in reality it's almost impossible to enforce. Simply saying that your plans have changed should be sufficient to avoid any problems in the highly unlikely event the OP is contacted.

    Obviously do not contact the airline and bring your 'change of plan' to their attention.
