Could the future hold free air travel?

WOW Plane

A bold statement made by Skúli Mogensen, CEO of Icelandic airline WOW, indicated that passengers could be paid to fly with them in the future.  He told the Telegraph Travel, “In the future we could pay you to fly with us. If you come to us and trust us with your booking, we can see that your airfare is reduced to zero and even reward you for it.” The airline has proved to be a competitive carrier offering transatlantic flights as low as £149.99, pushing their competitors to offer lower air travel.

But how will the airlines afford to operate? Airlines are now selling extra’s such as car hire, excursions and hotels which offer valuable revenue and could be worth more than the price of the seat. Remarking on the power of social media, Skúli Mogensen also told the Telegraph Travel, “A lot of people now, both pre- and post-travel, share pictures with their friends. If we do a good job and they spread the word, it is powerful customer feedback. As they are our advocate, they can be rewarded accordingly.”

Big thanks for the £304.70 transferred to my bank account today. My claim related to a three-leg flight from Norwich UK to Phoenix USA via Schiphol. The CAA suggested I had a good case but could do nothing because the delay occurred within Dutch jurisdiction. I twice did battle with KLM/Delta myself but they would not budge. Another claims firm tried but threw in the towel. So congratulations to Claim4Flights for taking it on and winning – and for getting the money transferred into my bank account within two days of notification. Very impressed!
