, not entirely sure what your point is. I've just checked both the easyJet and Basiqair sites for the cheapest possible return fare on the STN
Basiqair: £47.19 (€66.35)
easyJet: £34.82 (€48.94)
The Basiqair total is from two one-way €9 fares, the easyJet total is from an outbound fare of £6.99 and an inbound fare of £11.83 - you won't find cheaper fares than that at the moment.
Quite simply, easyJet is cheaper than Basiqair. Yes, a €9 one-way fare does sound great, but Basiqair leave out a greater proportion of additional costs, hence higher total fares.
, your support for Basiqair is admirable, but I fear that, perhaps, you are being patriotic (just a hunch) for no real reason. You suggest that Basiqair may be about to run easyJet out of AMS
, which, in my opinion, isn't going to happen. easyJet is, or at least tries to be, a European company, not just a British one. easyJet have done well at AMS
, and you can be certain that, without them, Basiqair wouldn't even exist. The days of the national airline in Europe are numbered, so please don't feel regret that those planes flying from AMS
may not be Dutch registered. With a bit of luck, one day we may have an EU wide aircraft registration! EU-...?!
