Best price guide

How to select the best dates to get the cheapest prices.

It has become harder than ever to find the best dates at the cheapest prices.

This is becaus the Airlines now use a more fluid pricing system which factors in the return 

as well as the outbound dates.

The grid below is designed to help you find the cheapest outbound and return seasons for

your journey.  Maybe leaving a day or two earlier or later could save you plenty.

Fare classes within the cabin and how they affect the fares

When you get a search result you will see under the Airline information the class that 

has been selected for the journey that is available (see below).

You can see that the outbound class differs from the inbound class, which suggests the fare has

been calculated by a mixture of the two classes.  This indicates that there may have been a cheaper 

fare but the availability on that day has run out, so the next higher fare (class) is returned.

Here is a list of the classes in price order from low to high

British Airways

O, Q, N, S, V, L, M, K, H, B, Y

Virgin Atlantic

O, N, X, Q, E, M, U, L, R, B, Y

 

Please be aware that this is just a guide but we hope it helps. 

Sometimes there may never have been availability in the lower classes.

Christmas peak will often only be populated with the highest classes.
