Cheap Flights (Rant)

  Covergirl 13:04 01 Oct 2010

I have just priced up 2 flights with a major cheap flights company (no names, I reckon they're all the same).

By the time I had added in extra legroom, baggage, taxes, fuel tax, no meals and all the other small print, the cost of 2 flights had risen from £150 to £550.

Rant over.

The prices are quite clear as you have stated, so what is the problem. You having a bad and confusing day?

This is the year 2010 and, when you return from whichever planet you're on, you'll find that "cheap" and "flights" is a contradiction in terms.

I can still remember when a flight that was advertised as costing £10 actually DID cost a Tenner and you could check-in hold baggage as well!

Was it really only ten years ago?

As well as considering coin-in-the-slot toilets, why not have coin operated Life Jacket release (You'll have to employ divers to retrieve your coins from both though!)

to me travelling in comfort hassel free as possible is all part of the holiday, therefore keep to scheduled airlines and avoid the thomascook/easyjet lot

Recently booked with a local airline. Flight advertised as £4.99 each way. By the time I had finished and had taxes, baggage costs, booking charge, credit card charge, seat charge etc...the final cost was £140.00 or so. You either have to take it or leave it !
