BAU (business as usual).Conorworld said:That's a frightening difference in price. To think of it it is also quite silly. To think that tourists have and are willing to pay the higher price is bad judgment. It reduces incentives to travel by plane and reduces competition. I suppose since AA is now on the road to public ownership the government has every wish to keep this tourist cash cow going. However since tourist numbers are dropping markedly it will be interesting to see what is going on.
I am more shocked that LAN is on the act as well. Since they took over Southern Winds they have been quite greedy in this respect. They could have seriously created decent competition between itself and AA but are happy to take part in this state sanctioned aviation cartel.
Not likely, is it?Conorworld said:Although South America and Argentina don't have the economies of scale as in Europe, US etc they seriously need a Michael O Leary to kick some gaucho butt.
