Low Business Class Fares from Cairo
I work in Saudi Arabia and am planning my summer holidays back to California. Is there any reason why business class fares are so low out of Cairo? I am thinking of repositioning to Cairo for the trip home.
There tends to be much lower demand and the airlines know they can’t command the thousands of dollar premium that they usually charge. Cairo, Colombo and sometimes Northern Europe are all this way
I have to echo what [USER=1436]@rickyw[/USER] has already said. Its all based on what the airlines believe they can charge in a particular market. Rickyw notes Northern Europe is sometimes this way too – I have seen relatively decent business class fares via Helsinki on Finnair.
