Open jaw ticket

Hi - Any idea why non-stop flights from NY to Berlin, Munich to NY would cost over $4000 when nonstop round trip flights NY-BER or NY- Munich cost about $600 (all in September)? When I try to search for the open jaw option with 1 stop, the flights are back around $600 total. I get the same results on ita.com, kayak.com and expedia.

(posted this in the flight forum too, so sorry if this is a repeat)
Thanks!

Are you looking at 'multi-city' pricing or two separate 1-way tickets?

Seems like a good price jetsetj. Maybe the one flight with 1 stop is as good as I can get? Not sure why though.

Thanks Ira - Yes, I just checked these as well and while the cost was about $600, they don't offer any non-stop flights with the open jaw.

Mae - I think Gardyloo's answer on the Air Travel thread is probably the most likely reason - no airline serves NY which flies nonstop from both Berlin and Munich, so you're your search is in effect turning up 2 one way tickets which are most always terribly expensive.

Exactly. Being in NYC, you are probably used to having non-stop options to anywhere. NYC-BER w/ MUC-NYC is an exception.

Just be glad you don't live anywhere else in the US, it would be worse.

Continental flies non-stop from Newark to Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, but not Munich. As far as I know CO is the only airline that flies non-stop from NY into Berlin.

I see open jaws for September to/from any of these 3 cities for $550 on continental.com.

Lufthansa/United have non-stop from Munich to New York but not non-stop from NY to Berlin.

So it must be that combination of the airlines for the one ways; Luf/United to Munich and Cont to Berlin, is creating very expensive non-stop open jaws. Thanks everyone.
