Senator – you are absolutely right about BA pricing in line with market forces. Captive UK audience.
However, more and more passengers are using ex-Europe fares, simply becasue of significant (up to 60%) savings.
Instead of increasing the fares for the “captive UK audience” why not consider a fairer price sturcture to disuade UK passengers buying ex-Europe fares.
This is one of the reasons why the carbon emmission programme is such a joke.
**higher prices for direct prices = lower carbon emmissions
**lower prices for indirect flights – yet a much larger carbon emmission footprint
However Green/enviromentally friendly I may be, a lower ex-Europe fare wins hands down each time. So really all these market forces are really quite “un green”!
Does anyone actually pay the Carbon emmission offset???
