The FAS and Aeroflot, or a bear in a china shop

 

The Federal Antimonopoly Service, in April, this year has put forward the requirement to several leading Russian airlines to change the pricing mechanism on the ticket. company aeroflot, Transaero, Orenburg airlines, S7 Siberia, UTairWe received an order change by May 2014, the pricing mechanism. According to the FAS experts, the price of the ticket will depend on the timeliness of the reservation.

That's just not how it is accepted in the world practice (the earlier broniruesh - the cheaper), but on the contrary: the closer the departure time, the cheaper, according to specialists of the FAS should be worth the ticket. Representatives of Aeroflot and Transaero said they were not going to change the status quo, since, in their opinion, the pricing scheme does not contradict antimonopoly service policy.

Aeroflot and another, unknown to the media company filed in the Moscow Arbitration Court on the illegality of the application service requirements. In a statement, the plaintiffs stated that the Antimonopoly Service claims are illegal, and it has been estimated incorrectly pricing mechanism. However, the Court of Arbitration dismissed the statements of both companies. Judging by the fact that the pricing scheme remains the same in these companies, the FAS or simply "washed his hands", or received an order not to go to where there is little sense.

Pre-purchased tickets allow passengers to buy them much cheaper when planning their trip. It also allows companies to transport carriers the most efficient way to organize a route, optimally using the aircraft load. Overpriced airfares of "the next few days" allow companies to partially compensate for the so-called "refusal tickets", which appear shortly before flights and compensate for cheap tickets. FAS did not take into account the seasonality of air transportation. In winter, airlines operate at a loss, having the opportunity to compensate for winter losses in the summer season. It is also necessary to take into account the ever increasing prices for aviation fuel and for airport services.

Such a gross interference of the state, according to representatives of airlines can seriously complicate and disrupt the aviation industry, air transport.

We also like that the market of services to consumers, of course, more profitable and more enjoyable cheaper to fly around the country and beyond its borders, using domestic carriers.

Soft landings for all of us.
