Now, our plan was yet to even. We had booked through the company to fly with Lufthansa, to have the security of a flight to Germany, but not to lose the opportunity to just before the holidays last-minute offers to look. The latter has now worked at Saudi Arabian Airlines. So we save about 100 € per person and especially we can stay three days longer. Holiday I had one way or another until 30.12., But because the flight we were already at 27.12. back to speak. We are therefore of 2 to 4 December and then from 21 30 December in Karlsruhe
The road to the Saudi flights was not necessarily easy. As in September, we have before the final posting some playing around with the search engine of the airline as well as Opodo, just to see also whether a longer stay is at the same price possible.
Apparently lies in the accounting system but a classic "demand determines price" system. In September we had the same effect that is observed. After a few searches that were part until just before the booking, the price suddenly rose. Was it in September is 50 € per person we have for the Chilean air to put on it, it was in this case, of 2074 SR to 3700 SR high, nearly doubling.
With the experience of September, we tried it again this time then: wait!
And actually, an hour later I was again the site of the Saudia flight for the 2074th As we in the previous experiments with the credit card company had problems, I went directly to Opodo, where the company successful in the way properly.
Economically, it is thought, of course, very useful with increased demand the price to put on, but I'm not sad that we know that and in such cases simply with patience can wait for lower prices again
