Air fares to rise
« on: April 27, 2010, 10:19:31 PM »
Just reading that because of this episode with the Icelandic ash cloud, air fares are expected to rise 5% to cover the loses experienced by the airlines. I don\'t expect that it will take effect on the other side of the Atlantic from UK, but I\'m keeping an eye on the prices as we will be shortly booking our flights for October with KLM.
Hope it doesn\'t go too high, I like to keep my money for other things when we get there !

If you\'ve seen that in the news or papers, then that\'ll be 5% on SCHEDULED FULL PRICE TICKETS..........

excursion fares are usually around 40% of full fare anyway so that mean increase of around 2%

I\'m sure the prices will go up on both sides of the pond.
One company will not lose out on an opportunity to gouge anyone they can...

The whole ash thing was a scam. Something else was going on at the same time to ground all aircraft in the face of so many experts saying it wasn\'t necessary.

And besides, what happened to the 150,000 Brits stranded in Europe? The planes I got back from the US, via Amsterdam, had 20% empty seats!!??

Me and my buddies expected to see queues of people at the check ins,  waving cash and messages offering to buy seats, or at least the airlines offering cash money to people prepared to wait over a couple of days, like they usually do when planes are overbooked. But nothing, nada, not one.  ???
