Clifton, you've been very lucky! But considering the competitiveness of the industry it doesn't surprise me at all. One good way to tell is to look at the Fare Rules. It will clearly state whether the fare was based on a one-way or roundtrip fare.

Rita, I'll have to check out the tickets I have in my lock box. STL to BKK, PNH to STL. Not sure which it says, but coach on the Eva website for this open jaw was as low as $832 coach, in high season, taxes included. Very competitive!

Rex may be on to something. I've never done a open jaw where the destination cities were further from each other than they were from me. Most of mine were international, so definitely open jaws.

I've simply called the airlines the times I've booked open jaw tickets (after researching on the internet ahead).

I usually book open-jaw flights online using travelocity.com, orbitz or the airline directly. As mentioned above, click on "multi-city" to get to the open-jaw section. When on a website such travelocity, you can't access this info from the homepage; you have to click on the "flight" tab and then click on multi-city.

I've used our company travel agent to compare prices for me, and they've always either found me the exact same flight and price as the lowest one I've found online (not factoring in their free) or, in some cases, tickets that were actually higher than what I found online. I'm not saying that this is always the case and that travel agents aren't useful; I'm just mentioning my experience.

Sorry...that should have been (not factoring in their "fee").
