[-] Ability to charge Y prices for C class as upgrades...
« on: June 28, 2010, 03:54:45 AM »
where demand for C is near non existent. I searched the forums and didn't see anything in there that addressed that question, although it might have become too old a topic. Anyway, I have a couple of routes where C class is really not needed on one route but I need to keep it for another route that does. I'm trying to charge the same as the Y class fare but no movement or increase to speak of just to fill the empty seats. I honestly did search the forums and came up with nothing on this particular subject. Any chance this will be able to be accomplished sometime soon? Thank you, sami. ;D

Soon? no.
Able to accomplish? Think it is


I think this is a nice one when the complete fare and seat type stucture of the game will get it's "D" check. During that process fares and seat types should be more an issue for passengers, So you can operate an AC with say 6 seat types in it and have 6 fares for a flight.

Some might say it's micro management... But we already have 3 seat types in game today so a few more wouldn't be that hard for 90% of the players I think.

Paxes do not really upgrade with the current model, they DO to some extent but not so much that you could fill 30 C seats when estimated C demand is zero, even with ridiculously low prices. This is actually an open bug report too..

But plan is to improve it later so that pax is not so class-fixed but rather look for best seat+price+service combination.

Yeah my goal is just to get the seats occupied even if its at discounted coach fare. Anyway, thanks for addressing this sami.

Just remember rape is an act of violence, not sex. Anyway... ::)

Perhaps an easier way around this for the programmers is to permit 'overbooking' in Y, and the pax sit in 'C' - just like what happens in reality.

I have a number of routes with a weekly 94% load factor in Y, but less than 20% in C. It makes sense for the airline to sell those empty seven seats at economy fares.
