I am curious about how the low cost airliners decrease their spendings and increase their profit??
When I ask this question to myself I could not find the answer and searched in google also I check the forum I couldnot find a topic about it
Do they make their maintanence rare then the others do? I guess they can't because there are realy hard regulations about it I guess?
They use the same aviation fuel, they use the same runway and taxi places (pay same charges to airports as others), use same number of pilots and crews
The only thing that I could find they do not serve meals or drinks. ( you have to pay for them)
Only meal and drink can make such a big differences on ticket prizes? for ex I check a 3-4 airliners tonight Izmir to Venice a low costs were nearly half of the normal liners...
For me the most important criteria is safety in flights.. it passes through well maintanance. for me not meal ,not knee room, or exc are important...
Also if you have any information about who are biggest and well know maintanance firms which could repair all different types of planes for many airlines??
thanks a lot
