Fares are through the roof

Been looking at a lot of fares in the 2nd half of the year and they're sky high in J, multiple destinations, multiple origins, and never DXB as origin/destination. Granted, everyone's fares are higher but EK's are up 50% vs 25% for most others.

Anyone have any insight?

surcharges back - these fares will come down they are not sustainable

It's higher in some cases. MAN-DXB is now 3k for a J Saver!

Loads are really good across the network in F/J (bearing in mind fleet utilisation), fuel costs up, time to make some money, simple as that.

Got to repay the 3bn USD injected by the owner in 2020 somehow!

Yeah - pent up demand after 2 years of non much travelling. Any EK flights will be Y for me at these prices

Managed to get a decent EI fare to the US before they push their surcharges up (BA have already started).

I have noticed this too.

I normally fly MAN to BKK with Emirates two times a year in J and pre-covid would have expected to pay around 2,300/2,400.

Emirates prices for many different dates later this year are around 3,400 and sometimes more for my preferred flight times. For example on 29 May 2022 my preferred flight times are priced at 4,100 (no savers available).

At these prices I will not be flying Emirates. Hopefully I will get a better price with Qatar, especially if I start my trip fom Amsterdam. If not, it will likely be Turkish from MAN.

just a few weeks ago fares were 1900. 3k is very high for savers, should be max 2300.

I wonder if international travel will bounce back at raised fare.

I think it is all The Russians now flying via UAE since there are not many flights to Russia and also no Russian airlines. TK is going to raise their fares too because of this most probably.

I used to fly VCE-AKL three times a year and usually it wasn't more than 4,600 €. I went to book today and it was over 6,000 to travel mid-May.
Way to much for waiting 10hrs in the Businness Lounge in Dubai and no chauffeur-drive.

At these prices I might be flying United *gasp* West Coast US to India has always been $3600-4400 J Saver up till just a few weeks ago, now we're looking at $5500-6500 for Saver. Heaven forbid I have to buy even one way in Flex.

I note that fares for my chosen route (YYZ-DXB-AMM) is up over 50% in price! And when I compare to the great deal I got in 2019, it causes quite the shock. Was about to book for a later summer trip, but have scrapped that.
