According to a recent survey conducted by our travel experts, travelers prefer discounts over comfort! That’s right, more than 50% surveyed said that they’d rather get a discount instead of more legroom, a free bag, or priority boarding.
We presented a fictional scenario in which travelers would be offered one of four options. While ticket credit was the clear winner, seats with more leg room was the second choice (32%), followed by priority boarding and free meals and beverage at 11 and nine percent respectively.
More than 850 people responded to the surveys. There was no significant difference in responses from men or women or age groups. Write-in suggestions included upgrade to first class, access to the airport lounge and the option to be the only passenger on a plane.
Our take away, cheaper flights over perks!
