I've always wondered if a plane ticket is the price according to the wages of a country...since I think the airline would lose money I think its not the case.
Lets say a GVA-MAD-SJO roundtrip ticket on IB cost me 1250 francs tax inluded (812E, 960$)...
However I guess someone who flies SJO-MAD-GVA round trip will pay the exact same quantity....however cost of living is not the same in Switzerland and Costa Rica and wages are a lot higher in Switzerland...
1) Don't you think there is some inequality...that proportionally plane tickets are ALOT ALOT more expensive for people that live in developing countries where wages aren't as high as in developed countries?
2 )Or is it that the airlines average the price that a Swiss person would pay on the basis of wages in Switz and the price a costa Rican would pay on the basis of Costa Rican wages
3) Does any airline practise fares according to a country's wages ?
