Fares Cheaper But To Same Place

Thu Apr 08, 2004 11:28 am

OK,

I was looking at DEN-ANC fares, right now on United, it is 409, but if you leave on United from COS, and connect in DEN, it is 339!!! Why though, it is just one more flight for less, I cannot leave form the springs.

Both Malaysia Airlines and Singapore Airlines used to (or perhaps still) offer cheap fares between KUL/SIN and Australia. e.g. It's sometimes cheaper for a Malaysian to fly KUL-SIN + SIN-SYD compared to a Singaporean flying direct SIN-SYD. These flights are usually timed early in the morning which require a Malaysian to overnight in SIN. Any loss they made in the flight fare they gained back by charging high for the accommodation. This tactic is of course done to entice Malaysians to use SQ, and the same goes for MH which offer the same sort of deal for our neighbour.

Too bad you can't depart out of COS, then get off in DEN on your return... Just don't check bags....  Smile
