No airline will pursue on such things. It is just a normal no-show for them, be it on the outbound or the return section of the ticket.
Keep in mind, that all airlines factor-in a certain percentage of no-shows when selling seats on a given flight, actually ofen accepting more bookings than seats are present.
When intending not to show up for a booked return section you should NOT check in for it. This will enable the airline to sell the empty seat to a stand-by customer at a high fare thus generating double income for the airline.
I would not contact the airline prior to no-show for the return section, as this might
indeed get interpreted as fare cheating and then could
get pursued by the airline.
A simple no-show always is the better option as can be explained as "change of travel plans at last minute" or "unable to reach the airport in time, due to traffic" etc.
When booking return tickets with the intention to no-show for the return section it can be an option to look into an open jaw-routing (but usually one has to fly back to ones originating region) with less transfers, as this might save on taxes and/or fuel surcharges.
Having a need to fly oneway from AGP
(for 3 pax), I booked a AGP
routing once on LX
, outbound in discounted Business Class, and return (fictious HAJ
) in deeply discounted Eco.
