    $800 each for LAX to Amsterdam to Vienna, returning the same way.
    But it is $1400 each for LAX to Amsterdam if I try to book on the same airline, flight, etc...

    What happens if I get off the plane in Amsterdam (only carry-on luggage)?
    Will I be able to catch the return flight from Amsterdam to LAX, or will they cancel due to missing the last leg?

    Thanks

    They most likely will cancel your itinerary. Perhaps you could find a cheap flight from Vienna to Amsterdam on a low cost carrier if you have the time for the extra flying.

    There's a chance that the operating carrier won't catch up with you if it's a very quick trip involving codeshares or different ticket stock, but you do not want to count on things working out unless you are willing to swim home or purchase a very expensive one way walk up fare.

    If you are giving up the second leg of four legs, there is a good chance that the rest of the flights will get canceled.
    I would see if there is another airport that you can return from and just book one way tickets.
