Missed outbound leg can't take return leg.

    I booked a return flight with Malev to Budapest.
    I missed my outbound leg and had to make my own way out.
    Now Malev are telling me that since I did not take the outbound
    leg I cannot take the return leg - it's their policy.
    So I have to make my own way back.
    Is this legal ?
    Do all airlines do this ?
    I know budget airlines don't.

    Yes - this is infact pretty normal for non-budget airlines.

    For example, Ryanair actually sell you two one way tickets - outbound and inbound, so if you miss one, you still have the second.

    However, you booked a return ticket with Malev, so when you didn't show, the entire ticket is voided.
