If booking through Expedia (or other OTAs), how can you tell if what you bought is a one-way, or a combination of two one-ways? Usually you cannot see the fare basis and rules before paying, but is there a reliable way to always get them after the flights have been ticketed? Is looking up the PNR and seeing a single eTicket number enough to guarantee that it is a single, one-way ticket?

Many of the European AAA-ATH-BBB combinations have very short connections in ATH, so if the inbound is late and you're on two separate tickets, then you'll likely be out of luck and forced to cough up the money to buy a new ticket yourself. Or will the OTA always pick up the bill in this case?
