Foreigner Airline Ticket Policies

Sat Apr 29, 2006 8:09 am

Can someone please explain to me why?:

I'm an American, I would like to travel from Munich to Copenhagen next month on SAS.

When I open their website it asks me what country I'm from...departure city arrival city...I get my price.

I then decided to see the price if I put that I was German (considering Munich is in Germany  Wink). I am then quoted a price over $30 cheaper for the same exact flight (time day everything)!

Does the airport charge the airline more simply because I'm a foreigner? Is it just the airline? Just wondering, thanks!
Sometimes I go about in pity for myself and all the while a great wind carries me across the sky.
