Codeshare this ACCC!
Putting all of the details to one side for the moment. How will the Qantas/Emirates tie-up help flight prices?
Because I like to travel towards the pointy end – have a look at this comparison for dates in May 2013 – after the Qantas/Emirates partnership is in place:
Qantas – Outbound
Qantas return – $11,715
– currently showing via Singapore.
Emirates return – $8,794:
That’s a difference of $2,921 – lets just call that $3,000
So the question will be – which price-point do we get next year – Emirates, or Qantas – or somewhere in the middle?
Something tells me, it won’t be the cheap Emirates price – take note ACCC (Australian Competition and Consumer Commission)
