Sorry to post a really dumb question on here but I did a search and couldn't find any answers. So I'd appreciate any help anyone's willing to give...
I'm looking to travel LHR-NBO on 3 November, returning 30 January 08, probably with BA. I've been monitoring their fares (and those of VS and KQ for comparison) over the last few weeks. My first foray onto BA's website provided me with a return economy (cheapest) fare of approx £629. Fast-forward to this week and I've consecutively had fares of £363.30, £459.30 and then £350.30 today over the last three days. I'm not in any hurry to book so I plan to keep comparing the fares over the course of the next month for the sake of curiosity.
However... what I want to know is how does this seemingly random fare-pricing malarkey work?!! I can't believe the difference in fares simply by one day! VS and KQ fares have, oddly, remained at the same level during the same period.
Please enlighten me someone?
