    MOVING THREADS FOR BETTER RESPONSES

    Hi, Martin’s asked me to post this in these circumstances: I’ve asked Board Guides to move threads if they’ll receive a better response elsewhere (please see this rule) so this post/thread has been moved to another board, where it should get more replies. If you have any questions about this policy please email abuse@moneysavingexpert.com

    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.

    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.
