My daughter is starting school in the US (we stay in Thailand) and my wife and I would like to accompany her back. There is a much better deal if we buy round trip tickets, but flying back would only be my wife and myself (contenting through China) . What will happen if my daughter doesn't use her ticket to return with us?

    This specific case seems to be about multiple people on the same booking, and some dumping a leg of the flight while others use it.

    I think the only difference is that they're all on the same booking, so addressing if her not taking it would affect the others would be worthwhile.

  • A group ticket where only one of the members has been hospitalized or detained or killed and can't participate on the back leg should not be that unusual.

You'll simply forfeit the return ticket for your daughter. It might be smart to try to book her ticket with a far-away return date if it doesn't cost extra--maybe she'll come to Thailand a year from now?

If you're wondering if the airline will prevent you from boarding without your daughter present: no, they shouldn't have any reason to do that.
