If they do, that's where they'll make their money. If not, they'll make their money off of last minute tickets. That 499 fare may become a 700 or 800 pound fare then......
very small premium class & 499 pound is highest round trip fare. They don't have a high last minute fare. They drop the fare until they sell out I guess, but it seems only weekly departures to PER
, so the last minute specials would be fixed itinerary.

I randomly looked for a one-way flight to SYD on 16th Jan. £219 with T.F. Not bad.
That's probably with all taxes is it?
|Quoting Mhodgson (Reply 4):|
the company who chartered the aircraft will probably pay TF a certain amount per passenger, and Thomsonfly can sell the remaining seats at a loss.
Do u mean, a certain amount per seat regardless of whether sold or not?

Well that's £480 return on a charter flight, we paid only £40 more to fly to AKL on Cathay Pacific next week (including all taxes). SQ were charging £600 including taxes.
You're not comparing apples with apples!!! We not talking for a few seats, we're talking for the whole aircraft or the whole of Y class !!! Scheduled carriers tend to have dozen of fares & booking classes for the same route/destination, depending on when pruchased, flexibility etc.
