ticket prices vs wages
« on: December 17, 2019, 12:36:40 PM »
I'm wondering whether my fares need adjusting.

I'm based in LTBA (Turkey) and country info says wages are 90% and GDP/person is $1100/pa. I fly a lot to Germany where wages are 156% and GDP is $9000.

When AWS sets the default Y fare for one of my Turkey-Germany flights does it take into account the relative wealth of each country? And would it calculate a different default Y fare for an airline doing the same route, but based in Germany?

I'm just wondering whether when optimizing fares I should look at the wealth of the countries involved...

I think that's beyond the scope of this simulation, to have different wages for staff on the ground in other countries.
