London To Amsterdam Advice Required

Fri Jun 14, 2002 11:50 am

Wondering if any of you know of any offers that I do not - a friend and I are making our bi monthly lets go to Europe and get pished trip - and this time in true typical British fashion, it's Amsterdam. So far, the cheapest I can find for two people works out at about £150 per person for a flight out on Fri 28th and returning Sunday 30th. Considering BMI , as I've taken the KLM Fokker 50 from LCY too many times and need a change. What are they like ?

So, who do you recommend - price is a consideration. We are two penniless student types.

I think BMI is a GREAT airline! I fly them in Europe whenever I can.

Easyjet might be cheaper. Depends a lot on how far in advance you book. Also check what's included in the list price. I think BMi includes airport taxes and other surcharges in the price you get on the website, Easyjet does not. With Easyjet those charges only show up on the final total you get on the booking page, not on the list of available flights.

Wouldn't the ferry be cheaper?

^ Ferry ? To Holland ? No thankee. This poor student flys everywhere at the expense of her overdraft.

EasyJet I have found for a £102 , but I don't know if I can be bothered to travel to Luton Airport for the sake of saving twenty quid or so ...

You don't have to travel to Luton, Easyjet also serves AMS from LGW. If you take the first flight on 28Jun (dep LGW 06:10), and on 30Jun the first flight back (dep AMS 10:20), the total for LGW-AMS-LGW return trip will be 111.80GBP, tax excluded.
