Last year and this year we got good deals by booking One Way on one airline and return on another, this works in some cases. Even using some smaller airports, last year we did Providence to Charlotte - Aruba on USAIR and returned on AIRTRAN - Aruba Balitmore Providence.... This year Providence was more so Boston on Southwest and return on AA.....
yes indeed sometimes it works out well………scheduling and pricing all work into the mix.
glad that you got what you needed and it pays to shop around!!
remember the years (not so distant past) when booking a one way flight was the equivalent in price as a r/t ticket…or more?
my, times have changed for the better!!!
