Since 1998, 1st-Air.Net has provided value added solutions relating to international business & first class travel for subscribers on six continents. As the airline industry continues to consolidate, we have refined our approach to maintain our position as the “GO TO” source for international premium cabin travel. When we started, wholesale fares, net fares and bulk fares were frequently used for business & first class travel at up to 70% savings. However, airline consolidation means fewer competitors. Net fares have been replaced by airline ticket auctions. You may not realize it, but when you search and purchase fares on any mainstream booking site you are participating in an auction. 1st-Air.Net helps travelers understand the drivers of their auction and secure their desired itinerary at or below fair market value.
The most frequently asked question from a new subscriber is “What is YOUR fare for this itinerary?” You will notice the word YOUR is in bold and capitalized. A common misconception is that we can “magically” shave 50%-70% off current market pricing by waving a wand. For routes with competition, fare levels are ultimately determined by you and your peers. If a sufficient number of flyers buy in at current fare levels, prices can and do go up. If travelers don’t buy in, fare levels can contract. On certain routes, carriers can introduce non published contract fares to distribute unsold inventory.
Today, 1st-Air.Net not only enables premium cabin travelers the ability to search pricing options but also provides valuable pricing analysis before subscribers complete their purchase. Our analysis may determine that significantly lower fare levels can be expected at a later date. Conversely, if current pricing represents fair market value, subscribers may opt to “BUY IT NOW”. As we have changed our approach, we ask our subscribers to grow with us. Your first question should no longer be “What is YOUR fare?”, but rather “Does this price represent fair market value?” As a subscriber, you can also upgrade your account with our friends at Passport Premiere for even greater savings by extending the purchase cycle.
We recognize that travelers have more search but fewer carrier options than ever before. We’re here to help you make sense of it all, and obtain maximum value in securing your next international premium cabin trip.
