Dear Sir or Madam,
I am totally confused in terms of booking one way flight or return.
The story is that :
During 2012 till 2014 I was living in Australia, whenever I wanted to visit my homeland back in Iran I was always booking a return flight from Iran, I mean Tehran (IKA) to Brisbane (BNE) and then Brisbane to Tehran (I did that by one-off one way flight from BNE to Tehran and then I was always booking flight with departure from Iran. Yes , I might need to change the date of BNE to IKA for my next holiday but the fee was not so high (something between $50 to $100).
I was doing all that since the return flight from Australia was always over $2000 but the same flight from Iran I was able to book with even sometimes $800 less.
BTW, from 2014 till now I live in Iran, now that I wanna come back to OZ after a while , I am totally confused as sometimes the return flight from OZ was cheaper! and as before for some other dates was more expensive.
Did something happened during the years I was absent in OZ? What do you suggest guys as I have two options:
1- book one way flight from IKA to BNE and then whenever I wanna visit family I book a return flight from OZ.
2- book return flight from Iran , and possibly change the date of flight from BNE to IKA later on.
My main question:
Does the return flight from OZ to Middle East (Iran) is more expensive than same flight on the same date from Middle East to OZ ? (myself couldn’t find a correlation for this, there was a correlation back in 2012 as I mentioned though.)
Thank you for your time and consideration guys. Looking forward to hearing from you.
