it is usually a one way ticket.K1 visa is a 1 entry visa, once gets here marry the petitioner within 90 days of entry, has to AOS to get CGC or AP to be able to travel outside the US territory.

No. The airline may question it when you board, so you may have to show them the visa.

One Way or R/Trip - doesn't matter.
K-visa entrant/holder is permitted to purchase/travel-on either. No requirement to purchase a R/trip ticket like a visitor would be. CBP will not inspect ticketing information.
(Airlines are not permitted to sell one-way tickets to persons who are not authorized to travel on one.)

Often a round trip is cheaper. Big misconception which comes from K-1 applicants entering to visit during the visa process where a round trip ticket is needed to show evidence of return. Once they have the K-1 visa it does not matter. Sure, she has to return if she doesn't get married, but they do not care when you buy the ticket or even if she swims back to Thailand.
Buy whichever is cheaper.

Absolutely they will, regardless of what type of ticket you have and whether or not you're a visa or visa-less traveller, the airline are responsible for screening passengers they carry to check that they are broadly eligible to enter the USA. That means ensuring VWP travellers have a return ticket inside 90 days, and ensuring that those ineligible for VWP have a suitable visa. I'm pretty sure that if the airlines send someone Stateside who is obviously ineligible to enter, the airline gets fined.
I dare say it's been stated enough now but I entered on a one-way ticket. The pre-screening guy at check in wanted to know why no return trip and I told him I had a visa and was emigrating. He asked to see it, and there was no problem at all. He did have to go off and rummage in some dusty cupboard to find a white I-94 form though (as opposed to an I-94W, which he had a stack of).

No problem with entry into the USA. When we were in Bangkok and went to the Thai Airways ticket office in Silom, the representative there tried to tell us that she had to have a RT ticket. Told the agent she was wrong. She went in the back for about ten minutes to talk to a manager and came back out and issued the one-way.
