    Air line flight prices


    0 Not allowed!
    I'm looking at flights (to Stockholm) next June and there's 11 a day. All are around €130 apart from one which is over a grand. Why is one seemingly arbitrary flight 10 times the price of all the others? Who would buy a flight for a grand when you can fly an hour earlier or later for a 100?

    And why are there such big price differences between airlines with code-share flights? Again, why would anyone willingly pay much more for literally the same flight?

      allows you get into office for 9? or leave at time after work? must be a rational reason for 10x pricing.

      Maybe for certain routes certain airlines are contractually obliged to offer prices?

      Lucky thing going to Stockholm one of my very favourite cities.
      I have no idea which flights you have looked at and the prices baffle me as well, but I do know that you can fly cheaply by Ryanair to another airport, Bromma rather than Arlanda and it's not hundreds of miles away from the city either.
      Norwegian from Gatwick probably have good prices as well.

      I'd presume so. But my question is what is the reason.

      Norwegian do tend to get greedy and shoot themselves in the foot though. They'll charge you, say, £29.99 for the outward leg from Gatwick and then quote you something stupid like £176.99 for the return leg.

      Thanks. The missus came home last night and plonked two Radiohead tickets for Stockholm in my hand. I'm very lucky!

      I've never been but am pretty sure I'm going to like the city. Any tips will be appreciated.
