Yes. I was on the LIN-DUB last Monday and I was offered snacks and drinks.

Is it selling still?

Out and back to LHR three weeks ago and out and back to LGW last weekend and I saw one passenger in four sectors in the front row.

Certainly to me the price difference compared to the Advantage fare in terms of extras offered nowhere near justifies paying it.

Zero when I came back from DUS recently

The current pricing is insane, was looking at CDG on A321LR and €300+, paid only €120 last year for the same date...

Coincidentally my company seems to have updated Concur as I was able to pick AerSpace as an option for the first time recently, but only because it was within Ä100 of the Saver at the timeÖ no way companies will allow it as a standard practice.

I agree the current pricing is insane. I got that specific ticket booked in AerSpace a while ago and the price was actually good. I have 6 flights booked from now to the end of the year within europe, none in AerSpace due to the crazy pricing.

They seem to have set the floor on it for DUB-LHR at Ä176

Which is off the wall really. Ä350 return for barely two hours in the air. Not sure why theyíre bothering. Another flight Saturday. Back Tuesday. Be interesting to see if thereís anyone In the front.

I predict there will be offers over the Winter and already seeing adjustments even on popular Wintersun routes on Advantage fares.

The delta (higher Advantage) you see between Advantage and AerSpace is surprising at times, it either speaks to immature revenue management software or is a play to grab incremental revenue from business travellers where its the highest bucket they can book into. It being EI, I'd be inclined to think either could be true.

I think itís separate inventory though - which is why a few months back a saver fare could have been much more expensive than an AerSpace.

Hereís hoping that they come to their senses. Itís absolutely not worth the price at the moment unless they seriously up the offering, which they pretty much canít.

Prime example is any outstation with a bus gate. FRA is a complete disaster in that everybody piled onto a bus together - zero ďpremiumĒ experience and then FAs not necessarily holding the overhead bins as they should.

it is separate inventory

Saver/Plus/Advantage are all the same bucket just with additional services so the delta in pricing between the option is consistent at all times
AerSpace is a different bucket entirely and has no relationship with the other products

So as above you can get lucky, but it appears the base pricing has been increased significantly recently

Just scanning prices there for early next year on a few routes I use. Canít see how anyone would pay the prices being offered. Itís off the wall stuff. Unless theyíre keeping those seats for people connecting off US inbounds heading on the European destinations.

I've never seen all J seats taken on the NEO on EU run so the revenue management is not working and that was at the previous pricing

0950 DUB CDG, A321NEO not exactly a lot of connecting traffic, too late for the 4/5am wave and too early for the second ORD/BOS/JFK arrivals, pricing is more than the earlier fight which only has 4 seats...

Iím also pretty sure J inbound flights still book into basic economy for their connection (the separate bucket to AerSpace) so I donít think US pax even have an option for AerSpaceÖ
