That's very cheap unless we are talking a yield management system with only few tickets at this price. Otherwise aren't they going to lose a lot of money on it?

You find 15 Dollars too cheap?

The high speed train from Ankara to Konya costs 10 Dollars (25 TL) for same distance,

Too cheap sounds funny, but yes in European context I think it wouldn't cover costs. Maybe with Moroccan labour costs (+cheap electricity?) it's different.

Yes what is expensive in HS trains is maintenance it will be done in Tangier,

I gave the example of Ankara Konya cause incomes are not too diferents in the 2 countries by the classic trains now Tangier Casablanca costs 12.50 Dollars, round trip 25 Dollars while in High speed Train Ankara-Konya the ticket costs 10 Dollars round trip 20% reduction.

In the other hand if we try to find a price in an european Train for 350 Km of distance i am not sure you can find less than 25 Euros except the old lines built a century ago. Try to have a look all the recent classic lines the prices are similar to high speed. I prefer to give you an example of a most expensive HSR per Km in France Paris-Lille (~250 km) i took the train last year to Sin Niclaas in Belgium i paid 20 Euros TGV Paris-Lille 1hour and took the train Lille Sin Nickaas 22 Euros 2 hours in half distance.

I recently paid 23 euros for a one way AVE ticket from Seville to Madrid (ca 500 km). That however was a cheap promotional ticket bought more than a month in advance. The average is significantly higher. Also in Switzerland where I live is much more expensive. A return ticket Basel-Zurich (ca 85 km) costs about 30 euros.

I could book 10€ Euros Paris to Marseille (850 km) last year the TGV Ouigo

In the same country it is like all other transport infrastructures when it is not new an old HSR (like Madrid-Sevilla for instance) it is already totally or partly autofinanced so fares can be low like the old highways. So it is not honest to compare all the time a HSR which has 1 year of existence to a rail built in 1900..

I am sure if we compare trains'tickets on other european classic rails built in the same date of HSRs Madrid-Sevilla, Paris-Lyon or Roma-Florence there should be no diference. Low fares can be present in the same country but not in transborders high speed trains cause of the mishmash between national rail operators.

Good to see Ville de Bordeaux in action again, a very pretty RORO ship built in Nanjing, China for Airbus to haul large A380 components across Europe.
