Flying across the Tasman 31 Oct 2014

The cost of trans-Tasman flying is not always what it seems.

Mr A wanted to go to Sydney. He looked at the cost of flights and saw they were a little under $250 a seat on the plane. He did not get around to making the booking until the beginning of the following week, by which time the flight costs had increased by $80 each. That was another $320 for him and his wife to get there and back.

He had heard air fares fluctuate according to demand so he waited patiently for two or three weeks until the price fell again.

The airlines have all sorts of devices for varying prices and getting better profits. This is one of them. Know when to rush in and buy and when to be patient.
