In the 1950s air travel started to become affordable to more and more people, shrinking the world in which we live. Year after year air travel has become cheaper and passenger numbers have increased exponentially. Today, over 8 million people fly every 24 hours.
With the increase in passenger numbers, so have the number of airlines. There are now more than 5000 airlines around the world. With so many airlines, competition can be fierce. This has led to higher standards of passenger experience along with more discount deals. Some deals are better than others, some very worthy, some not so worthy.
Affordability of air travel has also resulted in passengers flying more often. This increase in regular flying has led to passengers becoming more prudent in the type of special deals that appeal to them. They now search for deals that offer them a genuine reduction in the cost of flying, or something over and above the norm.
Regular flyers see discounting, through free bonus air miles, as being the most desirable form of saving money. Passengers see this bonus as a direct result of their loyalty to an airline. Consumer research has shown that, companies which are seen to genuinely give something back to its customers are held in greater respect by their consumers.
