Conclusion, recommendations and limitations:

 

 

Conclusion,

 

The study was conducted to know Pricing strategy of Qatar Airways and PIA. You have already been seen that we have done some analysis to measure the consumer’s perception. Data was collect from the consumers by offering them structured questionnaires to fill up. The study has found some facts which are given below

 

  1. We have found that Qatar Airways has very effective Pricing strategy as compare to PIA and has found according to line of the consumers expectation.
  2. Majority of the consumers are currently satisfied with Qatar Airways services as compare to PIA
  3. Qatar Airways provide complete information in their ads whereas PIA provide less information about pricing in his advertisement
  4. Qatar Airways make true promise related to price in his advertisement as compare to PIA
  5. Majority of the consumers shared their views that Qatar Airways tickets are much to high as compare to PIA tickets price
  6. Majority of the consumers are willing to pay bit more on Qatar airways services and due to healthy environment
  7. Majority of the consumers from Qatar Airways shared their perception they will jump any time if they will got another company with same price whereas PIA consumers have denied our statement
  8.  Majority of the consumers rating Qatar Airways services as Excellent and good after comparing to others. But on the others hand most of the consumers says PIA services is not excellent and goods as per our analysis. So it has been proved that Qatar Airways services effective the PIA
  9. Most of the consumers from Qatar Airways have agree that we cannot purchase the Qatar airways tickets if price of tickets will increase,

Majority of the consumers from PIA airways also shared their thinking that they will also not purchase the PIA tickets if the price of tickets would increase

Recommendation

 

On the base on analysis and Conclusion there are some vital suggestions for both companies

 

  1. As per finding, majority of the consumers says they will not purchase both companies tickets, if price will increase, So company should first study the consumers perception then set its products and services price according to consumers  expectation
  2. PIA should that clearly mentioned tickets and services price in his advertisements. Price should not be hide in the ads, as most of the consumers could not get price information from PIA ads as per finding
  3. We have found all services of PIA very poor as compare to Qatar Airways, PIA should improve his physically services as well as fly services to get maximum consumers satisfaction
  4. Both companies should conduct a survey why consumes want to shift to another brands, as per finding most of the consumers from both company want to shift another brand if they will find any others company with same services
  5. Tickets price of Qatar Airlines Company have been found high as compare to PIA or others company, So in the age of competition Qatar should adopt that price strategy which would be line to the consumers
  6. Both companies should offers some promotion price to their consumers to keep them loyal
  7. Both companies should set their price according to consumers desired

 

 

6.3 Limitations

 

  • Time and resources are the major limitation in this project.

 

  • In this study open ended questions have not been  used so that consumer have not shared their comments fully, because in our study close ended question have been used to determine the preference of consumers related to both company pricing strategy.

  • Loyalty Status.

 

PIA gives different benefits to the fliers. But all those who travel a lot get the benefit of frequent fliers which carries few discount rates on the tickets. To such audience PIA not only gives the discount facility but also the facility of pick and drop to them.

  • Social Class

 

In Social Class PIA targets the tourists, religious travelers and Pakistani Expatriates.

 

  • Tourists

 

All the tourists from different regions of the country or from different countries come to Pakistan for tourism purpose or go outside the country. Because PIA is having highest rate of linking the remotes areas of Pakistan.

3.7 Price changes

 

 

PIA also offers different price strategies according to areas. PIA set the price according to different segment.  So price adjustment is according to geographically bases and depends on company service.

 

3.8 Inflating price changes:

 

Like others company PIA also changes its price inflation when its competitors change their price.  It might be happened in the changes on competitor’s price.
