Technically its illegal and I believe if you are caught they can charge you the full fare.
This has been discussed before. It may be (or is) illegal in the US, where airlines may have the legal weapons to fight and fine and punish their customers.
In the free and economic liberal Europe, you just don't give a damn. To give an example, If I buy a return cheap ticket from FRA
and buy another cheap return ticket for the same day/evening on IB
back to FRA
, I have 2 options, complete the flights or just waste the return tickets.
I buy myself back to back tickets withon Germany all the times, sometimes one by air and one by rail, going out by train in the morning and return by plane in the eveming and repeat that in 2 weeks time. Or have both return tickets by air.
Never caused a problem and it is absolutely legal. we have a free market, the airline can charge me 3 times as much for the 7 am departure as they charge for the 12 noon departure. I just make use of the system and the opprtunities.
