I looked these up, and coach is sold out on the outbound

So from what you found out if I would ppurchase that ticket once I get to the check in I would be given a Business seat?
|Quoting EZEIZA (Thread starter):|
I'll be flying EZE-MAD on Feb 9th returning on Feb 22nd on IB. I booked my ticket a couple of months ago and paid €920.
So out of curiosity I checked today on IB's webpage what the fares were for the same dates and flights and what I found was the following:
Economy - € 3,306 (!)
... and here comes the funny part ...
Business - € 2,904 !!!
Question: how can it be € 400 more expensive on economy???
The flights are exactly the same
EZE-MAD Feb09 IB6842 leaving at 14.20
MAD-EZE Feb22 IB6845 leaving at 12.35
I don't think I'll ever understand how air fares work, but this was a surprise.
I'll appreciate any information on this cause I'm completely lost

Similar happened to me yesterday booking a train ticket; London to Birmingham on Virgin, almost full on my day of travel in 2nd class, 1st Class worked out 20% less expensive.
|Quoting RAFVC10 (Reply 6):|
the Business Class fare you found on IB website is a Business class with many restrictions (changes and refunds penalised) and the tourist class you found is an economy full fare with no restrictions.
