This is a very cool idea, but it really makes me wonder how logical the idea really can be in the event of a fare ware. Anyway, makes for a good read.

Hmm... either these guys are brilliant, or complete idiots...

But you have to, indeed, give them credit - they are putting their money where their mouthes are, even if they're doing it by guaranteeing something that I still (without the background info into the airlines' yield management systems) find wholly unpredictable.
Smile - it confuses people!
