Where are the best flight deals?

Given that the discounts are available only on a limited number of seats, it is important that you act fast and book your tickets at the earliest. In order to help you easily find out the dates on which these low fares are available, we will be adding a tool soon to our app – Unfare. We can see that the low fares starting from Rs. 777 are available in the sectors like Agartala – Guwahati, Chennai – Hyderabad, New Delhi – Jaipur, etc. So hurry!

Special advisory:

We had issued an advisory to all our users 2days back against booking flights due to the high fare period. We also mentioned that although it could last 3-4 weeks, any discount sale from even one of the airlines would trigger the end of the high fare period. Hence, with this sale, the advisory against booking flights would end.

We also expect other airlines like Indigo (score: 79.0), Vistara (score: 100.0), Jet Airways (score: 93.2) to cut prices as a reaction to this SpiceJet offer. This could happen either by noon today or latest by tomorrow. Hence if SpiceJet is not your preferred airline, it may be prudent to wait for reactionary offers.

Flight booking Advisory: Airfares entering a period of higher prices. Avoid booking now!

The Unfare algorithm has spotted a trend of airfare hikes across multiple routes in India and hence we are issuing this flight booking advisory. Across airlines, the airfares are entering a period of high prices. Given that we have seen quite a lot of discount sale in the last couple of months, we expect all airlines to gradually raise prices. If you have more than 45 days for your flight, we recommend that you avoid booking during this period.

Why does this happen?

Airlines are here to make profit and hence a period of lower fares (like we saw last month) will be followed by a period of higher fares so as to make up for the lost revenue during the discount period. Hence this is a regular cycle that we are aware of. The previous such period happened in mid-November last year.

How long would be this period?

While we can’t put a definitive time period to it, if all the airlines cooperate with each other, it could last 3-4 weeks. If even one airline breaks away from the rest and starts a discount sale, others will follow and this high fare period ends.

Does it involve all airlines?

At the moment we see only AirIndia with a lower UnfareScore at 41.8. All the other airlines are in a period of high fares. Check our UnfareScore page for more details.

Does it involve all routes?

Not really. There are exceptions. To find out, search for your domestic route in our app. And look under the “Airline tips” section (screenshot below shows Mumbai – Bhubaneswar route).

Should you wait till noon before you book an air ticket that is not on sale?

Airlines compete with each other for market share and revenue and hence it is only natural for them to adjust their prices based on their competitors’.

SpiceJet offer on Feb 1st:

On the 1st of February 2017, SpiceJet started a fare sale with tickets starting Rs. 888. Even though it came as a surprise to our fare sale prediction algorithm, it was a genuine offer when compared to the pre-sale prices as we discussed in our SpiceJet offer analysis post. Somewhere before noon on the 1st Feb, Indigo too matched the sale and came up with its own Rs. 888 offer. Had you booked an Indigo flight early morning on 1st Feb, you would have missed out on the sale!

SpiceJet offers extension:

The SpiceJet fare sale was initially set to end on 5th Feb 2017. On 6th Feb morning, Indigo pulled up its fares to pre-offer levels but SpiceJet extended its offer till 7th Feb 2017. Once again, Indigo reacted to this offer extension by pulling down the fares and extending its earlier offer of Rs. 888 sometime before noon yesterday. Again, just like the case on 1st Feb, had you booked an Indigo flight early morning on 6th Feb, you would have missed out on the sale extension!

Remember, Indigo was on a sale from 26th to 29th Jan 2017. SpiceJet during this period was on a low fare band but not on an announced fare sale.

Our take on this trend:

Any time you observe a fare sale by a particular airline, it is prudent to expect a reactionary sale from the competitors. So if you are booking a flight that is currently not on offer (because say, the route that you want to fly is not serviced by the airline that is on offer), it is good to just wait till noon to check if your airline does a reactionary price drop.

Remember, this will be applicable only during 1st or 2nd day of an offer by any airline. Beyond the 2nd day, you may accept that the airline of your choice has taken a decision not to match the offer in the market. Also, if you are booking a flight on an airline that is on sale, there is no better time than early morning!

Never miss out on an offer!

Fare sale alert: An unannounced airfare sale on Vistara?

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.

We applied this duck test (airfare sale test) on the airfares today morning and our algorithms have picked up a sale on Vistara. We checked their official website to confirm, but there was no information on the same! We rechecked our numbers manually and it still looks like a sale. And guess what? This even betters their declared airfare sale that happened during end of last year! So here is our Fare sale alert and analysis on this Vistara sale.

Out of the 109 domestic routes of Vistara that we track, we could find fares dropping on 104 routes when compared to yesterday’s prices. Sectors like Delhi – Guwahati, Mumbai – Guwahati, Goa – Mumbai, etc., have seen more than a 30% drop in prices today. So yes, it is indeed a fare sale.
