I think they're just trying to get more customers.

Search for 'european lowcost' and end up at Air France.. clever  Smile

Very clever idea on behalf of Air France, although there prices are far from lowcost.

It's perfect marketing at least to drive away competition.

I work in advertising and my client's biggest competitor has just done something similar, although as opposed to "European Low-Cost", they actually paid search engines money to have our name go to their link.

Needless to say, once the Agency and our client caught word of this, it was changed.

Very good but they are far from being low cost. If any of the European majors deserve that URL it is BA
