1. SOLUTIONS 1.1 PRICING & PRODUCT OPTIMIZATION Air France is currently confronting problems in its pricing policies, especially in its LCC subsidiaries. Pricing issues hinder its LCC subsidiaries’ competence inside a market of intensified competition, since customers of LCC are relatively more price-sensitive than those of schedule airlines, and the scenario leads to a loss in the revenue.

With their growing fleet and number of flights the competitive rivalry is low. 2.3 Strategy of Ryanair 2.3.1 Low Fares Ryanair sets their fares depending on demand on a particular flight and also by outstanding time before departure. If it is closer to the departure date the fare will rise due there will be a higher demand for it. Also Ryanair sets the low fares to stimulate the demand of their service.
