Could you please confirm if that would be the right price for that sector?


I'm afraid that fare is the outcome of their pricing system, often pushing on round-trip tickets, so that one-way tickets can turn very expensive, up to 4 or 5*round-trip fare. I got that sort of fares several times on this route.
For instance, I've just made a booking test, FCO-CDG May 18 one-way 985 euros, whereas a 2-day round-trip 186 ...
So, likely the fare you got it's not technically speaking an error, but of course is very very expensive.

Perhaps the flyers in the Flying Blue forum can provide some work-around.

I know that a lot of people is used to book a round-trip and then they do not fly the second segment.
Usually, I just get bored and book a flight operated by a competitor!
