    air tickets

    In AmE we say: one-way ticket or round-trip ticket and in BrE: one-way ticket or return ticket.

    Is it also possible to say in BrE: single tickets when we have in mind air tickets or the phrase 'single ticket' refers only to train or bus tickets?

    Thanks in advance for replies :)

    Re: air tickets

    Yes, we use 'single tickets' for flight tickets as well as for bus, tram and train tickets.

    Please don't use :) to end a sentence. A full stop is mandatory after 'replies'.
