    Tiger Airways trip report #2

    I don't know about that. I feel a significant percentage of DJ's business go to passengers who seek 'good value'. Because of the current small price difference between DJ and JQ fares, most travellers opt for DJ, both for convenience sake (because of bad stories on JQ) and good value. However...

    Qantas "letting us down", says SA tourism chief

    In my opinion, people flying from Adelaide with SQ, MH & CX do so for two main reasons: 1. SQ offers better connections (many destinations in Europe and Asia), and stopping through Changi in my opinion is a better experience than stopping through any international australian port. 2. People...

    Qantas, Loyalty and Tiger Airways

    A bit confused by this post......QF has to accept that with a 3rd player in the domestic aviation scene....... their current profits from QF Group operations might not be a realistic aim anymore. And with Jetstar promising to match prices....... and Tiger allegedly turning over a loss in Asia...

    Qantas, Loyalty and Tiger Airways

    NM-I know it is all about competition. I know the reasons and motivations. However- If all these companies raised their prices by over 50%, what would the general Australian public think? What if bank fees, or fares on public busses/trains increased by 50%? I think that the public would not be a...

    Qantas, Loyalty and Tiger Airways

    $98 is a sale fare NM, I'm comparing non-sale fares. But-I take your point though...... about it being complicated to analyse. Its giving me a headache lol..... Anyhoo....... doesn't change the fact that Qantas and DJ have raised prices by over 50% in the last three or so years...... to the...

    Qantas, Loyalty and Tiger Airways

    Hi NM- I disagree with this......here is one case study. Similar UK and Australian domestic routes are used as examples. BA: London Heathrow-Edinburgh (Duration-1:25) for 1ST of July 2007 (this Sunday). ALL OPERATED BY British Airways (mainline) Fares inclusive of all taxes:$162.50 (BA1462)...

    Qantas, Loyalty and Tiger Airways

    Evan, you're right- but I'm talking more about the domestic, rather than international markets of Australia. Thus, taking into account what you've said- we really need to get those loyal customers of Qantas to start spreading there business to Tiger........ so to keep Qantas honest. For the...

    Qantas, Loyalty and Tiger Airways

    Hi Evan, but compare BA and QF. Both are full service carriers of comparable quality (both are 4 star airlines according to Skytrax). QF is over 2.25 times more expensive on a comparable route......... meaning that QF are problably making 2.25 times more per seat sold than BA for the...

    Sorry straitman.......here are some more detailed figures in relation to air taxes in Europe and Australia . Taxes: CIA-LHR (on BA): $42, ($15 Fuel Surcharge included in this price) ADL-PER (on QF): $47 ($32 Fuel Surcharge included in this price) Thus QF's fuel surcharge is twice that of BA's...

    Airfare prices: Aussie Domestic (QF, DJ) vs Intra-Europe (BA, Ryanair, Easy Yeah.... if you have good status, it may get complicated........ but with QF's current prices and the lowly state of the Frequent Flyer Program....... you'd probably be better off financially to grab the cheapest flight...

    Qantas, Loyalty and Tiger Airways

    Hi guys, I want to pose an arguement to you guys. I think most of you would agree....... Qantas relies heavily on the loyalty of its customers. Despite Qantas offering a superior product, it overcharges on its routes........ and thus relies heavily on customers' loyalty to sell its seats...
