I simply don't understand it. It does make sense.
I was looking to book a return to Belfast from Manchester with BA, leaving on a Friday evening and returning on the 7am flight the following Monday. With their new system it said that the outward would cost £59, and the return £39, pluus taxes and charges resulting in a total of £124.70. Not too bad at all, I thought, but i decided to book that return to MAN and look for a cheaper flight from anywhere in the north of Enlgand. Anyways...I put the BHD-MAN flight through for a one-way fare, and I noticed first of all that it was BA's old style website, i.e. not the one that gives a choice of days showing the cheapest flight for that day. Onwards and...they gave me a final oneway fare for BA7782 of £131.00!!! Incredible! Its £7 cheaper to take two flights instead of one, even tjough I would have been booking the same seat!
WHY WHY WHY?
Sorry for rattling on a bit there but I am slightly shocked. Anyone else had this?
