Change in no of personnel in one sector of a round trip..

Good day all!

My heading to the question might be a bit confusing but here is the issue...

We 3 people (2 adults + 1 child) are travelling to India and on the way back only the adults are coming back while the child is staying back. Can we do this in a single PNR..? I have not yet found any mechanism in the airline websites to have different options with regard to no. of travelers on a round trip ticket. Still would like to know something of that sort exists...

Thank you in advance..

Have you considered just calling the airline's reservations to see if you can do this. How old is the child?

Also it seems that one way tickets from Abu Dhabi to say Mumbai, are roughly half the price of a return so just book the 2 adults + child on the way there and do a separate booking for the return trip for 2 adults.

Not only should you call the airline about this, which I doubt can be accomplished, but you will likely need the airline on the phone to make the child's 1-way reservation in the end. You probably noticed that most airline websites don't have the option '0' adults (usually 12+) when making a booking online.

And as is often the case, a simultaneous RonaldoC post makes what follows superfluous haha :)

@lennybruce

but the thing of '0' adults is not arising here...2 adults is constant both ways but the child is only travelling one way....

"'0' adults is not arising here"

If the child is flying one-way then they will need to be on a separate itinerary, hence they will be flying with 0 adults on that itinerary (since the adults will be booked separately as two R/T). You need to either call the airline or do as RonaldoC suggests and book two separate one-way flights - one with 2 adults + child, and the return with just the two adults.
