Janice,

Let me know if this explanation will help

For c, the fact that business travler did not take advantage of advanced discount tickets will not necessarily help explain (even if you assume) how the new 2-day ticket will be a big revenue generator for the airline. okay, so you assume the business traveller did not buy the 30-day advanced ticket, but that does not mean they will buy the 2-day either.

A actually helps explain why the success of 2-day will be a REAL success. Non-refundable tickets will mean real cash. Since the 30-day stuffs did not generate any cash even if they sell well, then the assumed success of the 2-day ticket will be a boom for airline.
