Spanair Creates "low Cost" Class.

Tue Apr 13, 2004 10:41 pm

According to the newspaper "El Mundo", Spanair removes the tourist class in all its planes and creates a new one "low cost" type (without any service, apart from transporting you of course).

Direct link (in spanish, sorry):

Would it be possible then to create a LC class instead of a LC airline?.

Cheers!.

Take a look at a so called "quality airline" like SWISS - service in the front cabins is still good or even improving, while the frills in "Peasant Class" are almost none. So, yes it is certainyl possible to cut back all frills in one of the travel classes without harming the other product segments.

BTW - one should always distinguish between low cost and no frills. A no frills operation does not necessarily have to mean it is also a low cost carrier (once again, take SWISS as an example).

Braathens (BU) tried this 4-5 years ago on the Norwegian market: Braathens BEST and Braathens BACK. Braathens BACK was a seperate class without any free service. Unfortuantely Braathens was bought up by SAS. Braathens BEST/BACK-consept came 4 years to early.
