“Blog reader Elaine Carson recently left a comment about her experience with Ryanair’s check-in policy. This topic certainly seems worthy of discussion, as it affects every holder of a U.S. passport who plans to use this airline now and in the future.”
“Ryanair launches its first domestic routes in France (Marseilles to Paris) and Germany (Frankfurt (Hahn) to Berlin). The routes will start in May 2008. For too long, French and German passengers have been forced to suffer Air France and Lufthansa’s high fares and fuel surcharges for the ‘privilege’ of air travel within their own countries. These new routes will slash the cost of domestic travel and will save French and German consumers over ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬26m per annum. ”

“Low-cost airline EasyJet operated its first flight to Malta this morning. (Sunday, 30th March 2008)
The Luton-based airline will be flying 10 times per week from Gatwick to Malta and daily from Manchester during the summer. During the shoulder months, it will service Gatwick daily and Manchester airport four times a week. The first flight arrived from Gatwick at 11.30.
Though it is a budget airline, no subsidies are being provided to EasyJet since it has assumed the slots previously operated by GB Airways, the British Airways franchise which it bought in October.”
