- How do airlines determine ticket prices? 9 answers
I have recently booked an almost last minute flight within Europe.
I got prices, for the absolute same flight, that range from under 30€ to more than 200€. Variations of ~30€ are kind of normal but this is extreme.
Looking at the company website I got prices over 200€. When I looked in skyscanner I found a whole myriad of prices. Being cheap ones through online travel agencies where you book and wait for confirmation.
How is this possible? What mechanisms are in place for them to access these cheap tickets? Is the delivery delay related?
