raather complicated, but all depends on load factors/capacity on services your talking about & what other carriers are doing. Perhaps on example you give, services via LAX
at certain times have poor loadings. Plus, you don't know how many seats at these prices ... there ight only be a a few via LAX
at funny times of day/week.
We have strange scenarios in Australia.
is much shorter than SYD
or especially MEL
, but QF
fares are generally more expensive BNE
than flying EG
Reasons I presume are:-
only operator on BNE
also operates SYD
has up to 4 flights/day on this route
common rates MEL
Am sure if UA
or new Branson airline started BNE
then guarantee that QF BNE
fares in general would become cheaper than SYD
the second UA
or Branson announced it.
