    Latvian national airline airBaltic is the first airline in the world offering discounted tickets for passengers during the flight. airBaltic’s travel store currently offers everything for your trip from flights, hotels, car rentals to insurance products, roses on board, phone cards and concert tickets. By selling tickets exclusively onboard, airBaltic secures discounted future flights to loyal customers. Tickets purchased onboard can be used for the next flight, or given as a gift to someone special.
    Flight tickets will be on sale throughout June this year on all airBaltic flights. One-way flights cost starting from EUR 30, including airport fees. More information about discounted tickets onboard can be found at airBaltic.com

    airBaltic serves 80 destinations from its home base at Riga, Latvia. From every one of these, airBaltic offers convenient connections via North Hub Riga to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, CIS and the Middle East.

    Could it be due to the fact that their balance sheet is short on cash? I am just speculating, but I would imagine discounted tickets sold this way is just a way to squeez your Account Receivables and stretch out your payables (actual time of flight).

    Airtran did (does?) this as well, $5 off if booked on the inflight internet.
