  • The simplest way to use 2 different airlines is to buy 2 different tickets.

The only potential problem is that you may be asked to show a return ticket (or evidence of an e-ticket, I suppose) in order to enter the US, as evidence of your intention to leave. In practice, I have never seen or heard of anyone being required to show that.

If it should happen to you, the border guard would not care whether the return ticket is a one-way ticket on a different airline or half of a return ticket. To be safe, therefore, it would be a good idea to buy the ticket for your return journey before you leave home.
