Default Pricing
« on: June 04, 2015, 02:47:27 AM »
911 didn't seem to effect default pricing.. I thought default pricing was calculated with some formula that included taking into account demand vs capacity and including route distance with normal inflation thrown in there at some point??  How exactly are default prices for a given route determined? And what makes them change from time to time?

9/11 is not modeled in this game. AWS pax demand is based on rl demand, and of course it went down for a couple months in several markets. Pricing in this game is very dynamic, and is the reason its suggested you adjust pricing frequently.

I think what goes into pricing is overall cost.  Meaning cost of staff, fuel costs.  Staff costs generally go in step with inflation.  Fuel costs fluctuate up and down, but generally in step with inflation.

Additionally, you have cost of aircraft, but I don't think it figures into default prices.  Aircraft prices are affected by inflation, but even more by popularity of aircraft.

9/11 is modelled on the global travel demand (not pricing; inflation is the relevant factor there). ref the other thread...

Default pricing takes into account only your costs, no other factors are included. Also the market fuel price is somewhat calculated, that's why you make a sh*tload of money if you get the hedging strategy right! :) I've recently startedheding before the oil spike and also reset the default pricing... Now I'm getting good money out of that, since my prices are the same ones of my competitors but margins are way higher thanks to the hedging of fuel.

Demand doesn't change globally on a daily basis. It tends to happen over a game month or two. I've generally observed that October 2001 will be where things fall off a cliff, and then improve slowly month by month.
