Help with fluctuating sales
« on: July 17, 2018, 08:19:48 pm »


So I opened up some first class seats, and they sold great for a week, and then I guess everyone got their flights in and went back home to work? How come it dropped on the last week?

This happens to me too, where most of my routes have these dips even with the same ticket prices.

Interesting. Yours is far more drastic than mine. I suppose we'll call it realism. Not sure if it's intended. What's your capacity like? Mines low, like 500 and under.

On this route I'm at 700 seats spread over 13 flights, with about half of the plane configured for business and first class. :)

I see this too.  Some of it might be competition taking your seats for that week, or some of your passengers were taking connecting flights after getting off your plane and instead of booking with your plane to a connecting flight decided to book flights with the airline that had both locations or a direct flight to where they wanted to go.  Some of it is based on loyalty too as it was explained to me.
