RE: Americans, Would You Like A Ryanair In The USA?

Mon May 16, 2005 4:34 pm

This is my first post BTW:

I am an American, but I live in Europe, and have lived here for almost two years now. I admit when I go stateside, I don't have much $$ and will occasionally fly WN from point to point if I'm at a school or whatot and go home for the weekend.

Well usually my ticket is around $100-$105 from Norfolk to JAX.

I see those crazy-cheap flights too, but it seems whenever Ifly anywhere from spain I usually get a flight for like 80 euro or 50 pounds. That sounds really cheap, but do the exchange rate and 87 euro is $109 roughly. 50 pounds is a little over $90.

That's comparable to the $100 average I pay on WN... Sure Southwest doesn't have many frills, but they offer free bevrages, reclining seats, and... windowshades, lol.

So if a SUPER-low fare airline came into play in the US, undercutting southwest, how cheap are you talking, like $30? $20?

I don't make much money in the military, but I can say If I had a choice of a $30 dollar ticket on a bus like ride in a cramped plane with no window shades, etc, or a $90 ticket on southwest, I'd go with southwest everytime.
