So Aer Lingus are having a sale, cheap seats if you book before June 1st to fly between October and December. I figure it would be a nice time to get a four day break away so I chalk in the first Sunday in October and the seat is a fiver. I need a return date so go for the Thursday, low and behold the seat is a fiver – sorted.
The fare is one way, so you pay a fiver out and a fiver back. Four of us went in April, so I figure four seats would be grand – 4 * (5*2) = 40.
Total cost of the flight? â‚¬322. To the penny. Taxes and charges per person are 64.59 making your flight â‚¬74.59 before you leave the airport. Then you’ve got a “handling fee”, presumably the way Ticketmaster have handling fee – PER TICKET – of six bucks, so now you’re on â‚¬80.59 before you add bags. If each person brings a bag out and back we’re nearing the 400 quid mark.
Not exactly a fiver now is it? Didn’t get around to clicking that ‘confirm’ button in the end.
