Usually these are one way flights to position the airplane for a full fare client. You get stuck schlepping back on your own.
In most cases, pax aren't flexible enough to even do the outbound without some certainty. They are bound to a schedule at destination that generally is the purpose of the trip. We have some friends that have ridden going or caught a ride back home at times but they have had to have a refundable airline ticket in their back pocket for the actual times. If departure was close or if coming back was similar, we'd go by and get them. They were good friends and it didn't cost them anything.
I dunno about you but everytime I go thru US airports even on a cargo route I get patted down by your Tsa. When I've flown on a charter they still toss my bags. I once had Babs www waa in our Lear c-to-c and Tsa patted her down too and dumped her bag on the ground.
