I have a question for those are familair with airtravel on the other side of the pond.
In the USA most one-way tickets are subject to the "SSSS-check" at security. I understand that this is changing though, and soon it won't be criteria for heightened scrutiny at the security checkpoint.
Is it the same for flights in Europe? I'll be traveling throughout the continenet in November, and rather than booking a bunch of roundtrips, I thought it would be much easier to just book one-ways. However, as I'm on a tight schedule I don't want to have to be concerned about potential lengthy delays because of a more intense security check each time a have to board a plane.

No, LCC usually don't even sell RT tickets - e.g. booking at AB you can book two oneways at any time because there's no discount for booking a RT.
Moreover, there's nothing like a SSSS-Check in Europe ...

To go through security in Europe into the departure lounge you need a valid boarding card, or equivalent. All security check is that you have one. They don't look at your ticket or booking or anything else.

I've booked many one way tickets in the US and never experienced the SSSS treatment. You certainly won't have any problems in Europe as most airlines now sell one way tickets and construct roundtrip tickets by combining the oneway cost (as it should be).
