On a specific date, I have to fly from A to B. Using various flight search engines, it turned out that the cheapest possibility is to buy a return ticket. Now the problem is, the search engines I know do not allow to search for the cheapest flight with a the first flight on a specific date and the second flight on a random (the cheapest) day. I want to do this, because I won't use the second flighty anyway. So is there any search engines that allows me to search flights like that?

Just choose the Whole Month as departure and arrival date. You will be presented with a graphic in which you can pick the departure date, the arrival calendar will update accordingly.

Thanks, this seems to work, however skyscanner does not show me direct flights that I could find with other search engines. – RoflcoptrException Jun 11 '12 at 15:30
@Roflcoptr: after you do the search look at the filters in the top bar (over the graphic). There should be a "direct flight" filter. – Geeo Jun 11 '12 at 15:33
Exactly that is the problem ;) – RoflcoptrException Jun 11 '12 at 15:34
@Roflcoptr: got you now :-) – Geeo Jun 11 '12 at 15:38
we could try to help more if you provide more information like: A and B actual airports, desidered departure date and site you tried :-) – Geeo Jun 11 '12 at 15:44
