The Airline With The Most Expensive Economy Class

Wed Feb 18, 2004 1:44 pm

I don't know if this topic has been asked before, but which airline, in general, has the most expensive economy class relative to other airlines plying the same routes ?

of course i understand the same airline may be the most expensive in some routes, while being the cheapest in others, so i guess just a general impression would suffice.

my impression is JAL.

I'd say BA, they always seem to beat everyone for prices (higher than anyone else) from the UK anyways.

I always find SAS to be rather expensive. But at least it's worth paying the higher price for the great service.

I don't know if it applies for all routes but Lufthansa- a typical TLV-FRA return ticket at peak season can cost up to $900 !!! (The typical fare for flights between TLV and Europe during peak season range between $500-$650 for regular economy class on other airlines).

not actually ... it's pretty affordable at about S$1800 ( USD 1080 ) excluding taxes, making it the cheapest premium economy so far compared to EVA Air's Evergreen Deluxe or BA's WT Plus, if you compare similar distances.

yeah i guess everyone has a different opinion, depending on the frequency of special offers and your part of the world. for instance BA and Qantas , in Singapore, give mouth-dropping special offers from time to time.
