WHY ARE FLIGHTS SO EXPENSIVE?

They were NEVER like this. The no carry on price is the same as two bagged prices back in 2015. This shit is NUTS.

    Welcome to late-stage capitalism hyper inflation. Well, either that or the fact that the airline industry is pulling itself back together after three years of limited passengers thanks to le coof. Prices are pretty insane though, not trying to make excuses for it.

        The flights aren't expensive because the flight providers are now doing extensive environmental action, but because the companies are inefficient and greedy

      Yeah, it was more expensive than right now in the 90s and 00s.

      Depends.
      The domestic flights I take every 10 days are half of what I used to pay before covid.
      East Asia is pretty rough right now due to the lack of flights. There are still too few flights and nearly not as many as before. It's still barely at half of what it used to be, thus driving prices up.
      I am going to East Asia next month and it's almost double of what I used to pay.

      In summer it's totally double, and even triple in some cases. Avoid summer 2023 at all costs.

      I genuinely can't imagine living thousands of kilometers from the nearest border.
      I can reach two different countries within less than a two hour drive and I do so frequently just for the hell of it - eat something different, check out the shop shelves, hear a different language, forget my own country for a moment. Makes for a nice weekend.

      Europoor here, flight prices have gone up significantly here as well. I paid over 240 euros for a flight from Barcelona to Palermo and back last month, before Covid this would have been at least 50% cheaper.

      Not a bad way to look at it tbh. Definitely softens the blow of paying an extra £400 to Thailand. It's basically how things were back in the 90s, so maybe now certain destinations wont feel so much like the Costa del Sol.

        Yeah it's cheap to go to Japan one way and get back on whatever cheap ass flight you can find, but without mentioning no real food service, pay for every upgrade, only limited to 1 personal + 1 carry on and they are anal about weight, will charge for extra checked bags by weight, no in flight entertainment(but free wifi), and so on; It's fairly useless to just post "low fare here".

        Fuel Dumping is a lot about the ability to be 100% flexible on dates and airports that you can pull this on. It's not exactly a 'gamble' per se but it's about as useful as telling people "LOL DUDE EZ WAY TO GET CHEAP FLIGHTS IS JUST ALWAYS ELECT TO BE BOOTED OF A PLANE FOR FLIGHT VOUCHERS!". Sure it's possible to do so and will lower the cost, but to most people fuel dumping isn't a realistic way for viable travel.

            Even then it's not ideal unless you have fully flexible dates with your job. Digital Nomading opens up some opportunity but still you're stuck on a plane with possibly spotty internet and resources.

    Carbon taxes and various other climate change fuckery hidden under the guise of 'inflation' and 'putin'. Shit you even have AMS stopping late night flights now because of 'climate change'. They HATE you flying. Flights for the masses won't be a thing at the turn of the century. It's only going to get more expensive until it becomes unfeasible for most the population.

    good. I want flying to be insanely expensive. Imagine if a flight from Europe to Asia was so expensive, only the super rich could afford it. Travelling would go back to the old explorer days where it takes months of overland travel to reach a far away mysterious land. travel would be great again. travel vloggers would perish.

    Flights aren't much more expensive than I remember. I recently checked ticket prices from New York City to Berlin. Tickets are quite expensive--going up to $500 one-way--but decline significantly after summer's end.

    Last year, for instance, I flew from N.Y.C. to Berlin for $175 one-way, and then from Berlin to New Delhi for an additional $350. Looking on SkyScanner, there are many similar flights in September and October, with prices rising only throughout the summer months.

    I don't see anything particularly surprising in this.

    Demand is extremely high right now. I fly a lot for work, often to shitty regional airports. Flights that 5 years ago had 35 people on them now are nearly full. Everyone is making up for lost time after being stuck at home for two years
