Airlines Cash In as Flexible Work Changes Travel Patterns

Last updated: December 21, 2012

In a traditional airplane, there are two kinds of seats: the economy seats and the premium seats. The economy seats have limited leg room, but they also have more overhead and are therefore more economical, while the premium seats are usually the ones in business class. All the economy seats have overhead, even the ones in the first few rows. But the premium seats include more leg room and have more overhead.

This flexibility with the economy seats is good, because it means you can take in many people, all with the same price. For example, in an American Airlines flight from London to New York, a first-class ticket costs about €1,300 per person. You can bring in seven passengers, take them on the same flight, and split their ticket for the same price with the economy seats, which can be purchased for €400.

And it’s also good from a business perspective, because if you spend a lot more money in business class because you can be on a flight with a lot more people, then you can still have the luxury of being with a lot of people in the economy class. Of course, you can’t take in all those people on a regular economy flight, but if you’re doing business class, you can usually count on the premium seats.

The problem with flexible work is that it’s not true flexibility. And when the economy seats are gone, you don’t really have much of flexibility. That’s because your flight is just that much more expensive. However, from the point of view of the first-class line, this is good, because this airline can now get a lot more business travelers.

So how does this shift from the flexibility of the economy seats to the flexibility of the premium seats affect the flight? It’s obvious that the seats in business class are getting cheaper, while the premium seats are getting more expensive. And the prices are not a good indicator of this.

The reason why the price of first-class tickets is usually a good indicator of the price of business class
