flyBE

For "flyBE" (a LCC from the UK), I noticed on the CO website that they are listed as one of CO's partners, and give CO FF miles for their flights. Didn't notice any reference to that on the flyBe website, so it may be an involved process to get the CO miles from flyBE flights. Save your tickets and BP's for submitting to CO for mileage. We flew them from Belfast to Gatwick a few years ago (BAe 146, they also have Dash-8's) when they were known as Jersey European, and the service and flight was fine. Fares are quite reasonable.

Great start to the list!

May I suggest:

Hooters Air http://www.hootersair.com
Sun Country http://www.suncountry.com


Don't know if you want to count the public charters that operate scheduled service such as Hooters, or not, but I thought I'd throw them on the list anyway since I think Air Transat and others operate on a similar basis.

Forgot one:
Allegiant Air http://www.allegiant-air.com
And:
Trans Meridian just went Chapter 7. So never mind about them

Lightbulb

Because of the many posts and suggestions in this thread, perhaps we should ask that this be made a "sticky" on the Budget Travel forum, to help our members find LCC's all over the world. At the least, it'd be a start in planning their travels.

Just a thought at 3:19 AM eastern time.

Deleted, because I'd duped the post above. See what happens with a slow computer.

bhatnasx, emailkid and grbflyer - thanks so much for volunteering and welcome as our moderators.

As one of your first "official" acts, can you make this thread a sticky? This has been mentioned as a request in serveral posts, so I'm not the only one asking.

I do agree that an LCC thread probably deserves to be a sticky, and this one certainly provides a lot of good info

Thanks for the sticky!

One site that used to be good was applefares.com. I paticularly liked the way you could do a "mystery search". Unfortunately it now seems to time out on its queries. Anybody know anything about this?

Last week, USA Today had a list of LCC airlines in Asia. Most, such as Tiger and Nok Air, have been mentioned above. The one not listed is One-Two-Go, based in Bangkok and serving China, Thailand and South Korea. Their website is www.fly12go.com

Since DavidDTW mentioned Asia, here's Asian LCC link that I found very useful.

Well, if the Idiots at DiVX did it (exact same name though), there's always another idiot.

Cool Comparison sites for budget travel

Hi,

Can some one provide details of the best sites for comparing prices on airfares? Also provide details on the cheapest air fares going around.

When I finish at least one of my other projects I keep starting I'll look at what might work well in a wiki ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki ) for these forums. But in true blue peter style, here's something I did earlier:

http://insead.cluehaven.com/WeekendBreaks

The bottom of which was a list of useful travel links for travel around southeast asia. Here's a cut & paste (less ugly if you go to the webpage):

http://www.airfares.com.sg/ - sometimes shows a much cheaper price than you can get elsewhere as it lists promotions (including student fares) that the major airlines have on offer. When available, these often beat cheap flight airlinees as below.
http://zuji.com/ & http://sg.travel.yahoo.com/ - decent prices across most traditional airlines.
There are also a bunch of cheap flight airlines you have to book directly over the web:
Bankgkokair for Singapore to Samui++ -- http://www.bangkokair.com
AirAsia for Singapore to Bangkok or Phuket -- http://www.airasia.com/
TigerAirways for Singapore to Bangkok, Hat Yai, Phuket++ -- http://www.tigerairways.com
Valueair for Singapore to Bankgok, Hong Kong, Jakarta++ -- http://www.valuair.com.sg/
Silkair is the Singapore Air cheapish flight option - lots and lots of locations: http://www.silkair.com/
Jetstar Asia for Hong Kong, Pattaya, Taipei++ http://www.jetstarasia.com
Garuda -- http://www.garuda-indonesia.com/
Siem Reap Airways - http://www.siemreapairways.com/
Berjaya Airways for Tioman - http://www.berjaya-air.com/
Lion Air is good in Indonesia http://www.lionair.co.id/Network%20Dest.htm
Nok Air is good in Thailand http://www.nokair.co.th/html/traveltools/routemap.html
Select a city (worldwide) and see where from/to you can fly by budget airlines: http://www.whichbudget.com/ -- not yet complrehensive.
Recommended travel agent (organizer of the Great Indian Tour): sunil@tour-masters.com

What about LTU and Condor?

Great topic here!

I didn't see this German LCC / Charter Carrier which is IMHO good to know!

www.ltu.de

Cheap intra-european flights and some inter-continental destinations at very competetitive prices.

Similar to www.condor.de

Sorry, if this was mentioned before...
