Dropping the final leg of a UA flight

Jump to last reply

I read about this all the time, but still feel a touch nervous. Hopefully you UA (or any airline) experts can reassure me.
I have a roundtrip ticket purchased awhile ago. I need to change the date and city of the return portion. To change the return to another date and city it would cost a small fortune thanks to the UA $200 change fee. If i leave the existing ticket as is and fly the outbound, but drop the return I can save money. I can book a one way return flight for several $100 less. So will i make it back home doing this -- only flying outbound on a roundtrip ticket, dropping the return on a Saturday and returning home from a different city on the following Monday?
