About The Rs 500 Air Deccan Fare?

Wed Mar 09, 2005 4:26 pm

Eve since DN advertised today for the opening of the ticket sales from July-Aug, I have unsuccessfully tried to log on to the site and/or get thru the agent at their call center.


Finally when I got thru, the best price available was 1800 for August. I was wondering how many of you ever got the 500 Rs tickets. How many such seats are there on each flight, any idea?

Generally the quickest way is using the "lowest fare finder " option. While I have never booked a Rs 500 trip myself, I have found quite a few Rs 500 fares say 2-3 months ahead in some routes (BOM - Surat if I remebber correctly was one such).

Cheers

The cheapest fair that I get from BOM to DEL end june/early july on DN is around 1800. I was hoping to get the Rs500 fair.

I guess there is a lot of traffic on this route.

Saw DN A320 sponsored by Sun arrived on bay #12 a few hrs after Vijay Malliya left with his Pvt B727.The guy travels in style.But he made his Crew wait for over 7 hrs.
The DN A320 did not seem to have many Pax disembark though.

Depends on which flight it was . The MAA BOM and BOM CJB has just been restarted from 21st March after flight cancellations for a long time (more due to the crew shortage I suspect than the unintended impact test on the wingtip). So market confidence has to build up again for these routes!

As for the two new aircaft, I heard they are new examples. Is it true???
The older three I think was ex Qatar Airways.
