I was wondering if anyone could explain something for me regarding airline ticket pricing. I recently purchased return tickets, 12 month return, for 2 people from Muscat to Brisbane vis Bangkok. The purchase was made in Muscat at a cost of $1800 AUD in total for 2 tickets. The same tickets but reversed (Brisbane - Muscat via Bangkok return) quoted online by the same airline to be purchased here in Australia are $3961 including a booking fee of $60.00. Could not get a quote for a 12 month ticket so had to use a 1 month price for comparison. Can you explain the difference, why is it twice the price here in Australia?
