Last I knew airlines were threatening to cancel your return trip if you missed 
a flight midway. They have some super BS excuse for not letting you do it that 
boils down to "We don't like it when people game the system."

 If you know how you can fly “open jaw”.  It’s not that hard to do, but most 
ticket booking sites don’t support it.  You can use Google’s ITA matrix to do 
it.  Hipmunk will let you do stuff like this, too.

It takes some effort to use these tools to find the cheapest route, but 20-30 
minutes of messing around with various combinations can often yield some pretty 
good deals.
