A hell of a price to pay for the tier pointsBack to Forum
Just trying to get an idea of flights from LHR to JRO next November to go on Safari.
BA quoted £11,932.02 business class return for the 2 of us on a Qatar airlines codeshare flight, via Doha.
On the Qatar website, the same flights are £7400.42.
BA have nearly a 70% mark up. Do they just not want the business, or are they trying to catch out loyal customers who use their website assuming things like this do not happen?11 Apr 2018
Years of trying and I still haven’t worked out how airlines price their tickets.
JFK-FRA on SQ metal in J cheaper by half on SQ site than LH codeshare.
MAN-HKG-MEL in J cheaper than MAN-HKG in J on CX using same MAN outbound.
Same story MAN-MEL via DOH on QR.
You get to fly twice as far, eat and drink twice as much, for less money.11 Apr 2018
Willie Walsh once said at a travel trade conference :
“If the general public can understand airline pricing, we’ve got it all wrong.”
I worked in revenue management, and I don’t understand a lot of it, and it certainly doesn’t make sense to the public.11 Apr 2018
