If their demand model is reasonable, this anomaly should still happen only rarely. I don't think they've got the model anywhere close to properly calibrated for the PE cabin. It's way too optimistic. Though I suppose if they're going to err based on a lack of history, there's a case to be made for pricing too high rather than too low, since they can always discount closer to departure.
