what does nominal cost exactly mean? for example, an airline offers a single ticket at price $1 during promotion, but actually its cost is $200, so what does nominal cost mean here, it means $1 or $200 here?

Nominal cost here has the meaning "(of a price, consideration, etc.) named as a mere matter of form, being trifling in comparison with the actual value; minimal. " In this example, $1 is termed as the nominal cost because it is very less in comparison to the actual cost ($200). Hence by giving tickets at nominal cost, the airline is promoting itself !
