why standard seat with price? Standard seat with Standard price


If you go for example a First Class Suite, you can actually increase the price by 20%ish.

Because with First Class Suite, your cost (space used in aircraft) is up ~100%, If all you get is extra 20%, it is a money loser.

You are correct. However, if the demand for first class is 4 seats, you can make more money having 4 suites instead of 12 standard first class

although I've never used Suites before.

So only change between standard and lie flat first class depending on how many seats i need for a certain route

Although, I never said anything about making more money in my post. I just responding back to the original posted

I didn't say I would fly 12 standard first class in that scenario (demand 4).

I would rather have 6 standard first class and hope to fill 4 (66% LF) consistently than with 4 premium first class seat to hope to get 100% consistently.  And 6 standard would still take up less space (lengthwise) than 4 premium first class.  I never really tested it to see which one really works better.  It just goes with my general impression that seating quality does not amount to very much in AWS.
