Industry sources said that the airlines operators took the decision as the 'promotional fares' did not yield the necessary results. "We have discontinued our promotional fares as the response has not been very good, but people who have already bought tickets under the scheme will enjoy the benefit, Air India spokesperson informed media.
Meanwhile, spokesperson of Kingfisher Airlines said that the airlines have closed low fare buckets and are concentrating on setting higher fare buckets. "Our focus is on revenue and not seat factors," he said.
