Ticket Price inflation
« on: May 13, 2011, 07:21:43 PM »
Is it automatically adjusted in the long run? I'm getting an 83$ ticket price as standard on CDG-Heathrow...

No, you'll have to press 'Reset to default prices' at the Price management screen from time to time.

Or just use the "raise by x% tool", since that won't mess your price relations (if you have reduced prices on some routes; which are reset on the global reset).

How much does the default actually increase each year?

It's not a fixed number. It could also decrease on some years.

The best way to see it is to go and edit a price of a single route, note what the original price is, then click the reset prices- button and calculate the % difference.

Does it change once a year on fixed date, or does it change several times per year or at different times of years?

It changes sometimes several times a day. Yesterday (~9UTC yesterday till ~9 UTC today for me) they changed three times in average terms.

So resetting it once a day could be not enough if you are only more often. If you are not only this often, once a day or every two or three days should be also ok, maybe causing loss of very little money for your airline.
