Promises Of $10 Intercontinental Flights

By Expert Author: www.cheapfares.com

Those in the know are aware of the many cheap travel opportunities out there today, including cheap airplane tickets and cheap vacation packages. What they are unlikely to know is that one airline is vowing to sell flights across the Atlantic for 10 bucks.

In late February Ryanair’s CEO was quoted as saying as soon as his airline acquires the necessary aircraft it could sell $10 tickets for flights from the U.S. to Europe and return flights for around $14.

This CEO envisions Ryanair flying from 12 to 14 major European cities to 12 to 14 major U.S. destinations. Full service could begin, according to the CEO, within six months of Ryanair getting the necessary aircraft.

Ryanair has acknowledged that it may take some time before such cheap lost distance flights are available. Estimates are that it will be four to five years before Ryanair has the purchasing power to buy enough planes. Currently rapidly expanding Gulf airlines are creating extreme competition for new plane orders.

Some believe that Ryanair’s vision for the future is not necessarily preposterous. Unquestionably Ryanair would add on lots of additional fees for passengers buying such bargain basement tickets, as is its strategy today.

The Irish airline has a history of selling impossibly cheap seats offset by crazy ancillary charges. While its base fare of $10 for one way cross Atlantic flights may eventually become a reality, it will not include the extra fees and surcharges that Ryanair dumps on its passengers, including, but certainly not limited to, credit card fees, baggage fees, and booking fees for tickets purchased over the phone.

Ryanair claims that it would offset the cost of $10 seats with higher priced business class and premium tickets.

It is a little scary to imagine what a flier will have to endure if he or she flies in one of those $10 seats.
