[-] cross demand idea
« on: November 09, 2013, 04:19:23 PM »
currently I'm flying an aircraft with F-seats on a route without F-demand... that's just because the aircraft has those seats (I need it for other routes it flyes)... so, I thought, if I have them, maybe I can offer them very cheap... maybe they can be sold anyway... so, I did set the price to the C-price (and I get C-passengers) ... but, nothing... the seat's remain empty :-) ... now, here's my idea -> maybe, you could somehow do the C-seat-calculation for the empty F-seats and fill them like that? ... I know, it means you have to do the calculation twice... but it would be a nice feature
this maybe could then allow airlines to fly an dense-C seat only and offer it as premium Y-seat? ... well, I'm not sure how you do it... but some improvement would be nice and could create more possibilities for competition

There are requests for that pending for years.

I know, but the idea, simply to run the C-pax distribution also on the F seats and the Y-pax on the C seats is a new idea... and (alltough I would love to see an ever enhanced distribution system) it would be an easy thing to implement and a first step in the right direction.

And the current system is more than just very strange... now I'm offering F for 74$ and still they're flying only Y (235$) and C (563$).

F seats are taken by C or Y pax already. However not when there's no F demand at all, then the calculation is simply skipped .. which is, well, wrong in this particular case

well... I think, this request has become some sort of "bug report" ... isn't it?

How would I observe this working?  Let's say the part that should be working, a route with no F supply or demand.  The route has a demand of Y:200 C:1, and I supply Y:160 C:10.  Do the extra Y pax who don't fit in Y section move to C and pay C fares?  Or do I need to lower C prices to price of Y in order to get them?

I think you have to lower the prices... I did a test and offered on a route without F demand the F for 74$, whily Y was 230 and C 560 ... and then I saw no F pax... sami told me then, that this is "not correct" because it skipps the calculation... if "not correct" means "bug", that's an other question  ;D

I am testing it on one route, I lowered C prices to Y level.  Not having a lot of luck filling up those C seats even with lower prices...
