I'm planning my travel to Nepal for this Christmas holidays.
I'd like to book a ticket for an internal flight so I jumped on some local airlines websites.
I found out that is a common policy to differentiate prices for Indian and Nepalese citizens from all others.
For instance Buddha Air, for the same flight, asks 99 USD for foreigners
and about 29 USD for locals
(Difference: locals gets 15+5kgs, foreigners get 25+5kgs; I'll travel with 10/12 kgs so I don't mind.)
With Nepal Airlines seems even impossible to book a seat if you're not Nepalese or Indian
What sort of rule is this? Is it related to the Nepalese airlines very bad reputation? Is there any way to get a discounted ticket as a tourist? Can local agencies make some kind of negotiation?
