Message is in the title.

I've found a really good deal on Norwegian direct from London gatwick, and the round trip comes to £2200 for 4. Are Lingus goes via Dublin, and has £2670. Anyone have general tips as to a good airline to fly. We are extremely cost conscious,Mende the consideration of the two above airlines.

Other than charging for blankets, pillows and headphones. We'll have to pay for at least one of those The volume of a pillow and headphone are a bit big, We don't have spar for them. Besides. We've already booked them now. Booked row 8. They didnt let my much taller mum, dad and brother book exit seats, while I could've stayed in row 7. Pretty stupid. Just cos I'm below 16, everyone suffers.

£3400 round trip. Compared to £2200 for Norwegian and £2670 for Aer Lingus. Pls be sensible.

It's a legal thing... Not an airline thing.

The idea about the exit row is that the people there should be able to rip that door off and throw it to the wingtip in the case of a crash, not some ****ing kid gently tapping it because he wanted an extra inch for his flight because he couldn't arsed to book a decent flight.

Both are terrible airlines.

 

Delta is actually a nice airline. Or can you not afford quality? If not, go with **shudders** Norwegian or EI

I would suggest flying to LAX on Air China. Their 747-400s have state of the art IFE and they speak really good english.

Ok i want to understand something.

 

Why didnt you fly AA ? I just did a random search and saw AA for 773 pp. 

773 x 4 is more than 2200!!

Not as far as I'm concerned. I can formulate my own opinion on things like this, I was asking for advice, not criticism (you are much better than a cold breakfast). 

 

It's not that I can't afford quaity, it's that we aren't willing to splash £3400 on a flight, when we can spend the £1200 saved on other holiday-related stuff.

There isn't, it's just there are better things, like bread butter jam toast. That's delicious.
