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.

Routing would be FRA-MUC-NCE-MAD-LIS-FRA

Thanks.

No. Never heard of it, never experienced it, though often flying one-ways in Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, UK, etc.

Don't worry, there are no extra security checks for one-way tickets in Europe, unlike the US... Even though I bought a bunch of one-way tickets there and I didn't experience any lengthy checks.

Have a nice trip to Europe!

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).

Are you sure this won't cost you a whole lot more than roundtrips or 'continuations'?

I've heard this before but it never happened to me although I've done a lot of one-ways in the US.
