What is for sale?
As for the assortment, it is understandable that in the shops on the plane it is usually more modest than at the airport. But the prices depend on the specific product.
- The Tom Ford Oud Wood men's perfume in Sheremetyev's duty free is more expensive than in the Aeroflot catalog (309 EUR versus 12,350 RUB).
- A liter of Jameson Irish whiskey in the Finnair catalog and Vnukov's duty free costs the same – 29 EUR.
- A liter of Hendricks gin in Vnukov's duty free is more expensive than in the Lufthansa air shop catalog – 50 EUR versus 40 EUR.
In general, it is believed that goods in the air are cheaper than on the ground. If only because airlines do not need to rent retail space and pay sellers (stewards will play the role of the latter). In addition, airlines often offer the opportunity to pay for purchases with miles and provide an exclusive range of goods available only on board.
