No one can doubt the price differential – but is that a result of currency variations – or market differences?

There are a numbers of reasons why MXP-NYC might price more competitively than ZRH-NYC; I’d suggest foremost amongst these is the recent arrival of Emirates, very much the challenger without an established market presence – or customer base – for the route. On the other hand, its product offering is clearly strong. It is not that suprising that strong price competition has resulted.

There is clearly advantage to be taken of the vagaries of airline ticket pricing – but not sure I’ve seen evidence that any of this is currency driven?
