This question already has an answer here:
I was searching flights to Paris, and was shocked how much they were. But I can fly to Russia, with a layover in Paris for nearly half the cost.
I know if I book to Russia I can just not get on the flight from Paris to Russia, but the question I have is how to fly from Paris to home when the originating city would not be Paris? Does it matter that I wouldn't be on that first flight?
