In February 2009 airless sold 21.1 percent less premium tickets than in February 2008, whereas in economy class it was only 8.3 percent less. Ralf Baron, practice leader of Arthur D. Little’s Travel and Transportation team thinks that even though sales of premium tickets will pick up again after the crisis it will be a long while before pre-crisis levels will have been reached again.
