This paper examines the motivations which led to the adoption of so many different fare categories as exist at present and analyses the relation between pricing policies and the economic difficulties currently faced by the international airline industry. Particular reference is made to North Atlantic routes, a key market in which many fare innovations have been made. The author suggests that many of the promotional fares should be replaced with differentials more closely related to variations in operating cost.
