Trying to book via Emirates website:
MAN --> DXB (27th July 2013)
DXB --> HKT (30th July 2013)
HKT --> MAN (18th August 2013)
and even though there is the ability to select Economy fare as part of the booking process, once this is done, all the flights are bumped up to Business fare, due to this being the best available price. Or sometime, no seats are available at all.
Is this an Emirates glitch? These flights were available in economy, only 2 days ago.
However, if you try and book a
MAN --> DXB
DXB --> MAN
during these dates, you can book economy - and the price reflects this. So at least on this leg of the journey Economy seats are available.
Also, if you try and book:
MAN --> BKK
BKK --> MAN
during these dates, the results by price calendar returns 'No availability' on every single date combination. These flights were available in economy, only 2 days ago.
An Emirates glitch? Or are they shuffling their seats about? I'm not that savvy on airline seat availability and how demand (from searching?) affects this - but will these economy seats, during the dates above, become available soon?
