Dealing with logistics of a one-way ticket

The problem: Boyfriend has been living in Central America for several years--he's not a permanent resident or citizen, but gets his passport stamped every 3 months (just takes a quick trip across the border). This seems typical of lots of expats in the area, and there are no problems with the host country so far. Boyfriend has an Italian passport. He's currently visiting me in the States. He also visited last October, and when we were at the airport for his return flight, the nice lady at United told us he couldn't fly back to Central American country without a ticket showing that he would leave this country within 3 months [more inside]

How casual was air travel in 1974?

In the movie The Parallax View (1974), Warren Beatty boards a passenger plane, without a plane ticket. He doesn't have to buy one until the flight attendant comes down the aisle to ask him, "Round trip?" Was air travel really this casual back then, like getting on a train?

How can I take that later flight?

I need to have a flight pushed back, any suggestions? Ok so I am away and I need to go home but I just found out that I have to leave later in the day than when my flight departs. I am flying United and I bought the tickets through their site, they are the cheapest tickets you can get, no refunds, etc. Is there anyway I can take a later flight without spending more money? Does anyone have any experience with this? (I'm going Salt Lake City to Chicago)

Package Travel to Europe?

Travel prices question. I might have to take a sudden trip to Europe and the cheapest last minute airfares were all over $1,500. But there are also many hotel + flight package deals advertised for the same price or even less. How can this be? And as I've never done the package thing, is it a good way to go? Any hidden pitfalls?

All Around the World

Any of you guys have experience with RTW (round the world) air travel tickets? Any particular ones to recommend? I have been looking into STA off and on, and several other options have been uncovered. But it seems all the data I can find is depressingly out of date. I tried futzing around on this webboard, but, not knowing much at all about airports, pro-level flying, and the like, I was incredibly intimidated to the point of "not knowing where to start."
