Yesterday, I looked at oneway pricing for the direct CDG-YVR fight. Economy was more than 6000 Dollars. Premium Economy was less than half.

I have not seen yet the real explanation in this thread: nearly all reasonably priced long haul round trip fares still have a Sat. night requirement. One way fares end up being comparable with round trip wit no Sat. night stay. Maybe even a bit more...

Agree that the PE o/w pricing may be a better option than Econ options and throwing away the return, (or trying to get a credit, with the hassles of change fees and restrictions), in a sea of bad options if you have to do a one way.
My recent experience was YVR-MEL, where I worked out that PE was the best compromise. Also I was hoping for the upgrade to Biz (which j-u-s-t scraped through, only because it was a PE fare)
