    Book non-refundable economy C2-C1 with fully refundable C1-C2. Fly first leg. Cancel C1-C2 . Get second leg refunded. Will this work?

    It all depends on the airline and fare rules but gener in the farally the following apply;
    1. When you cancel the return, the outbound flight will be repriced as a one way, which could well be at full fare, wiping out any saving from the refund.
    2. The restrictions in the fare rules of the c2-c1 flight might apply to the whole trip, meaning that you cannot refund the return leg, our only do so for a fee.

    Probably best to just search for a consolidator one way fare, our buy miles if there is award availability for the flight you need.
