There’s plenty of talk on this forum and others about how airlines look to maximise revenue by all means such as yield factors, extra charges for check-in and so on.

Is it any wonder passengers look for ways to minimise costs and can you blame them, after all, what’s good for the goose etc?

I need to go to Athens in July and again in September. As I’ll be coming to S. Africa in July and returning in September for this function in Athens I looked, more out of curiosity than anything else, for the ticket prices ex ATH to JNB and got an eye-opener, they are at least 35% cheaper than ex MXP!

Now I know the reasons but it’s still an incredible saving so I’m booking my trip ex ATH with a MXP – ATH return and saving about €1,500 in the process.
