Being ‘super’ on the skies means more than just being able to afford an expensive and flexible first class ticket
As the world’s airlines face a tough year, especially in the West, some are using strategy to ride out turbulent times with similar plans to cruise by on the strong business-class market.
While the ultra-expensive airlines have been watching competitors, superbusiness ventures are looking towards superiteurism to increase profits.
Firstly, superbusiness airlines receive a large number of customers who need an international network, rather than just local flights. Secondly, they need to make sure their routes are large enough to serve low fares even at peak travel times and are well laid out for passengers.
Very good are often reviewed by well-known groups that can be influential amongst customers, which has always been helpful when it comes to driving business.
It is therefore no surprise to find the superbusiness model has a much higher resale value than an airliner. So over the life of a ticket, the buyer is usually able to recoup the full cost of the airline.
Rather than buying basic seats, there are superbusiness offers which can either give the passenger a lot of flexibility in the way they pay for their journey, or with the amount of leg room they get, and there are many no charge conveniences including a dedicated flight attendant.
Superbusiness mainstay Qantas airlines is well known as an ethical airline by putting the environment at the top of its agenda, but it has also had to adapt to keep pace with the ultra-flexible flights, which need little intervention by the ground crew in its terminal.
Qantas’ answer to ultraflexibility is clearly to not have a single luggage-carrying carry-on class to which all passengers are required to check in at the airport, but there are many other airlines that have also joined the ultra-business market such as Emirates, Singapore Airlines and Lufthansa.
Many airlines have great strategies to cater for business-class travellers and raise funds whilst weathering the current storms.
Superbus is an airline to watch for 2019. It is known for its expansion efforts and the service it gives.
