I was reading a few articles that were talking about how cheap flights to Germany have been recently and a new one popped up saying how Germany wants to make it so you are not charged for your flight until the day of. The reason being is that they have been having so many issues with cancelations and reschedulings that people have become frustrated. The nightmare has created a drastic decrease in tourists flying there so they want to remedy it.
If they are able to do this, would the cheap prices and day-of charges increase your likelihood of visiting? I have not been to Germany since 2013 and whilst I loved it, it hasn't been at the top of my list to revisit but I think this would change things for me considering how messed up travel has been for the last 2 years.
I believe they already started it, this "pay as you fly" new model so they can avoid refunds and issues with cancelations and other fees. I think it is a smart move and I hope other countries follow.
You are right, I did see something about this the other day. I was not sure if this was the same thing or not. It just makes so much sense. I think with how many people fly these days, it is a lot of wasted time and transitions when delays and cancelations happen.
