Based on this question:
Not flying the first leg of the journey – Company cancels the second-leg ticket
I was wondering if the same applies to low-cost carriers.
The reason to buy a return ticket in traditional airline companies is that it's cheaper than buying the two legs separate. If you did so, you could easily miss the first flight and attend the second as they were not related in any way.
However low-cost companies like Ryanair or Easyjet sell tickets for the same price (a return flight will have the same cost as the sum of the two individual tickets).
I fly often in low cost, and to avoid missing the return flight if I miss the outbound, I always book separate tickets. However, it would be convenient to book both, inbound and outbound flight together, as it makes the booking process easier (I just have to do it once).
Do you know if you lose the return flight when you miss the outbound flight in a low-cost carrier?
