A simple block arrow around the airway name (e.g. "L73" written in a block which is an arrow). This designates the airway as one-way.
Normally (two-way) airways are designated in a block with no arrow at either side.
Remember with the Even / Odd thing that you must assume that all airways are odd in one direction and even in another direction (for Low Alt and RVSM). The "E >" and "O >" will only appear where the flight levels used for that airway are opposite to the general flow (i.e. Even instead of Odd or vice-versa).
Hope this makes sense!! Shout if it doesn't.
I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...

In Europe, one-way routes are faily common. In the US they are pretty rare. I don't feel like pulling out a set of charts now to go looking for one, but I seem to remember seeing one a while back. Here in the States, for a lot of operators, airways are used very little. If the aircraft have the right navigation equipment and can fly above the "crowd" you simply file for direct routings.
