Are American Airlines one-way flights expensive?

American Airlines one-way flight tickets can often be expensive when the route frequency with the airline is low. These flights tend to be more expensive as there are fewer seats compared to the number of travellers. However, this isn't always the case. Booking two separate one-way flights can often be cheaper than booking a roundtrip flight. Airlines have many different ways of depicting flight fares, it's hard to determine which one-way flights are expensive and which ones will be cheap.

What is the difference between a one-way and roundtrip flight?

One-way flights are flights that fly you to your desired destination without a return flight back home. A two-way flight ticket (also known as a roundtrip) is a flight itinerary that includes one flight to a destination and another flight back from that destination e.g. flying from LDN to AMS and returning back from AMS to LDN.

Do I need a visa for one-way flights?

This all depends on where you are travelling to/from and how long you're staying. A travel visa is an official document which lets foreign travellers visit or stay within that country for a particular amount of time. If you are looking to relocate to another country please ensure that you research the visa requirements of the country that you're flying to.
