Manchester Airport UK queried outward/return ticket.

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

Airline check- one way tickets and visas.
I get the 3rd degree at check in about this with Emirates, too, but only occasionally. It happens more frequently where the staff are not dedicated to a particular airline. It’s largely down to the experience of the counter staff, their intelligence, training and attitude. Someone unfamiliar with a route might get a bit OTT, or confuse requirements specific to some destinations as being applicable to all; I usually persist for a few minutes, and then ask to get a supervisor to assist.*

One way ticket cost
For reasons that still don’t really make sense to me, a one way ticket carries a premium over a return ticket. Sometimes, quite a hefty one.
It may be worth considering buying a return ticket with a very long return date, and paying a change fee later. However, the difference in overall cost may not be great- cost of a few beers. I have done this in the past for other destinations.

They will not let you board in the UK on a one way flight to the USA if you have a visa waiver.

Yes, the US is very special, but this thread is about flying to Cambodia/SEA from the UK. The OP should have no problems now that he has boarded and is on the way.
A couple of times, I've had problems to explain about Cambodia's VOA at the airline check-in counter when flying to Cambodia, and that can take a while,sometimes 20-30mns while they call to check, so I make sure to leave plenty of time. One way ticket or return ticket didn't make any difference. Always ended up ok. :)

He asked me how long I was staying and how passports I owned.

I replied couple weeks and 1 passport. Without waiting for me to finish he said pay the man and go wait for passport back

Easy peasy - don't think he was that bothered!
