I was wondering if its possible to book different classes (say economy for outbound and Business for inbound) for a return flight and still get a good price.
I am asking this because the one way fares of some airlines (e.g. LH) don't seem to be proportional to the return flight for the same destination hence it will be too expensive to book two sinlges, 1 economy and 1 business.
Is there an online tool that can calculate such a combination?

I don't think so...
On British Airways, you can select different classes for your different sectors - so you can do J outbound and Y back or F one way and Y the other. It's on the second or third screen in where it shows the prices - you can change the class there too.
I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

Not sure where you're going CYatUK, but the CO website will price Y/coach and J/Business First itineraries. Several airline websites also show both Y and J class type fares in their schedule display....namely, AC,AA, and US I can recall at this point.....I think SK as well, but I believe LH, KL, and AF only display class/fare requested.

Thanks guys, its a flight where J class is fully booked so I was thinking of returning economy but I 'd rather stay another day if I have to pay almost the same for economy as I would pay for Business if I go J and return economy.

I did it with AA once. Wanted to splurge a bit but...not too much. I booked MCI-DFW-NRT-ORD-MCI, and outbound on Econ and return on Biz (figured I'd rather end the trip on a high note rather than start it on a high note if I had a choice)
