just checked it's currently $49 on ryanair. cheapest airfare i've seen from an international airline, except for maybe airasia, where you can still hop a flight from kuala lumpur, malaysia to borneo for thirty fuging dollars

That is an awesome price!

This includes a proper landing, right, or should I plan on bringing a parachute with me?

Funny story about Ryanair.  They tried to get a law passed where they could sell standing room only tickets on their flights.

eurorail passes are freaking horribly expensive. if you just wanna get there take ryanair, they're obscenely cheap


it is, but it's the equivalent of flying into concord regional instead of charlotte douglas

its a very good airline. and they seem to have certain "standards" with their flight attendants (hint: they sell swimsuit calendars with them)... At least that was the case back when I lived in Europe.

The problem is that they save money by going to alternate airports. Fly to London, you won't land at heathrow. you'll land at stansted. many of their airports in Germany were old US airforce bases that were given up in the 70s and 80s.
