: possible grammatical errors Of all the cities in their region, Beaumont and Fletcher are showing the fastest growth in the number of new businesses. Therefore, Avia should establish a commuter route between them as a means of countering recent losses on its main passenger routes. And to make the commuter route more profitable from the outset, Avia should offer a 1/3 discount on tickets purchased within two days of the flight. Unlike tickets bought earlier, discount tickets will be nonrefundable, and so gain from their sale will be greater
The planning department concludes that by establishing a new commuter route between two fastest growing cities and by offering a discount on non-refundable tickets bought within two days of the flight on that route, more profits can be made by Avia Airlines
countering recent loses made on the main route. The reasoning is flawed on couple of counts and ignores a few key points which should be
before arriving at a logical conclusion.
First, the assumption that non-refundable discounted tickets will generate more profit from their sale is simplistic. The business planning department is assuming that as the discount tickets are nonrefundable, profits can be earned when a traveller who had booked such a ticket does not travel. The problem here is that, someone who buys a ticket within two days of traveling will have very less probability to not travel. Even if there is an urgent reason behind a person not traveling, the chances of the person canceling the ticket are minimum because he will not be getting the refund
. As a result, the
of airlines selling that seat to another potential traveler is very less. Hence, the seat which was sold for 1/3 discount will
result in more loss.
Second, the routing plan assumes that the commuter
between Beaument and Fletcher will be high. The argument does not present any data to support this claim. While the two cities are seeing the fastest growth of business, but it is not necessary that growth is happening in interrelated business. It could be possible that one city is seeing growth in consumer goods business while the other in
equipment business. In such a case, the commuter traffic between two cities would not be as much as expected and instead of making profits, the airlines could end up operating empty planes, thereby increasing the loss.
In conclusion, the argument is
flawed and should provide
about the commuter traffic between two cities as well as take into account cancellation statistics for
booking their tickets within two days of travel. Only if the reasoning suggested, can be supported by data it can be considered a viable plan
