Price Premium For All-Business Class Flights?

Wed Mar 23, 2005 3:40 pm

Has it been shown by the current LH/LX (and to some extent AF) all-Business Class flights that passengers are willing to pay a price premium to experience an environment such as this?

Do you feel as if a passenger would actually pay the premium?

Hey FLY777UAL,

Nice topic!

I don't have a clear answer to your question. However, I know that some seats on the Privatair-operated LH flights are/were sold as full fare Y tickets, which may imply that they're sold at a discount.

Another important point to note is that non-stop flights almost always command a premium over connection services. As a result, a non-stop DUS EWR flight in C/J will usually be sold at a higher price than connecting services (where's many airlines compete, such as AF via CDG, BA via LHR or LX via ZRH).

I would be very interested to hear a precise answer from the LH's yield management department.

Privatair ZRH to EWR could also be called Novartis Air as the : pharmaceutical giant books a huge number of seats on the flights as employees fly to site in Newark.

Quoting AF-A319 (Reply 1):

True, but that's usually only available for passengers upgrading to C-Class using miles - so while it certainly is a discount, it's a discount only available to frequent flyers.
