Config. For Long Haul High Demand
« on: December 15, 2012, 03:04:39 PM »
For flying long haul routes with lots of Y, C, and F demand, is it worth configuring the aircraft with C and F? And if so, how much?

Generally, not until the company CI is, IIRC, 50> for C and 70> for F. Also, domestic routes do not have much C and F demand.

I will say so as well. Even in domestic routes C is good to have (if, of course, there is demand).

I'm selling business class tickets on short-haul domestic flights already at 24CI and RI in the 40s. I don't believe it's ever too early since you aren't going to fill an all economy plane either.

Plane with premium seats are always bigger earners than those without if there is demand. Say you can put 8 C seats in for 10 Y seats, that means for the same revenue you would have to get 1.25 times the Y price for a C seat. Since you will get more = $$$.

However, reconfiguring is expensive and the expense can hamstring your growth if you do it at an early stage. The costs take some time to amortize, and you will miss that money dearly especially when you are in competition and get outgrown by your competitor.
