A Canadian experience.
I've bought numerous one-way tickets to fly within Canada, and I've done the same when I worked in the States. It's pretty normal to fly from city
to city on a one-way ticket. I think that's normal in any country.
I find it hard to believe that a ticket from LAX to LAS is gonna get you a finger up the bum if you fly one-way.
My worst experience with security:
Long before 9/11 I bought a one-way from YEG to PDX but I had to tell them I would be continuing back to Canada by bus to B.C. I also had to prove I
had sufficient funds for the trip. This was the only time I've ever had a man look down my underwear without my permission. :shk:
These guys even held the plane for my suitcase to be removed and checked.
They squirted my toothpaste out of the tube and stuck a pencil in my shampoo.
I'm not sure what I did to get the super extra scrutiny, but they said thank-you and I was allowed to fly on the next flight, about 4 hours later,
and with a plane change at YYC I didn't originally have.
This was long before 9/11, and I still don't know why they singled me out, other than I had a one-way ticket to the U.S.A.
