Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Ticket prices at SJ

Published: Sunday 2004-04-18.

“Right now” ticket a Saturday morning, Oslo–Stockholm: 341 Swedish kronor (about 37 €). “Right now” ticket Sunday evening (they next day), Stockholm–Oslo: 782 kronor (about 85 €)

Last time I took the westward trip it was all the way from Nynäshamn (which is an extra hour by the commuter train) last autumn, then priced at 622 kronor—I find it a bit unrealistic that the price has increased by 25 % in half a year, but according to SJ’s customer service it is the correct price. I think I’ll rather take the bus back, that is what you want people to do by pricing tickets that way, right SJ?

If I go Monday morning, that too during “rush hours”, the ticket Stockholm–Oslo costs only 493 kronor (53 €). Weird pricing system, this.

Kanske SJ har tagit intryck av flygets prissättning att dubblera priset när en kupé eller vagn har bokats full. Det blir än märkligare hos lågprisflyget, då en enkelresa (i det här fallet Stansted - Västerås) under kampanjerbjudanden kan skilja från 7 kr + skatt till 800 kr + skatt beroende på vilken dag man vill åka.

Hmm, med Nordic Airlink får jag samma pris på returresan Stockholm-Oslo, inräknat resor till och från bägge flyplatserna, som med SJ.
