Apparently when an airline is advertising it.
I got an email from Continental this afternoon suggesting that now would be a great time to visit Las Vegas. And they’re advertising the low, low price of $566 round trip from LaGuardia. For starters, that’s a pretty high sale fare and not likely to drive a ton of business. But beyond that, they’re missing out on the fact that the fare they’re advertising isn’t even the best deal they have on offer.
Check out the fares they have published in the market:
Indeed, there actually are a number of cheaper fares available and if you click the link in their email to search they’ll sell them to you:
I know that the airlines are working to increase their revenue and there are certainly a number of fares that are more expensive than they have been in recent memory, but when they cannot even publish a sale correctly maybe it is time to start wondering what the real issues are in their business model.
Needless to say, I didn’t bite on the "deal."
