Originating Cities for Cheap Airfare
Besides Colombo (CMB Airport), are there other cities or airports I could use as originating position cities for cheap business/first class cash fare prices?
Cairo tends to have good fares too. In Europe you can also get relatively competitive prices ex-ARN (Stockholm).
Also depending on the carrier you want to fly, you may find attractive fares from non hubs, that are hubs for other airlines or alliances. For instance, you can get at times “cheap” F fares on LH/LX when originating in CDG or HEL
If you are considering Scandiland don’t forget to also check OSL and CPH:
And you normally will find the cheapest prices for AF F out of LON/LHR.
It’s easier to give you advice if we know where in the world you call home, otherwise it becomes rather academic.
