    One Way Tickets More Expensive Than Two Way

    Since some of you here are frequent travelers, here is a pop quiz to test your "frequent flying" knowledge. You will notice that buying a single journey plane ticket is more expensive than the usual return ticket. The question is, why is that?

    One way fares are usually fully flexible and refundable hence the higher cost. Target customers tend to be businessman as opposed to tourists / vacationers.

    Excellent answer. I was beginning to suspect some of you don't really know.

    Now here's the thing. Disregarding the special deals, flying a trans-pacific flight from HK to North America is rather pricey if you take CX right now. But there is a cheaper way. Know what that is?

    Why would you give a crap about someone who is not going to come back with you and could even be a terrorist?

    Shit even the normal return tickets classifications are mind boggling, the same seat has different prices for different class, J Class, E class etc etc
