“Business Classes in Europe are far from lamentable, when compared to alternatives in other countries, and particularly at the price points at which they are offered. “
I agree totally, VK.
Lamentable does not being to describe what a rip-off these flights are, regardless of who provides them.
I am very taken with easyJet, these days. Booking an emergency exit row and invest in a nice carry on picnic, buy a couple of mini bottles of wine enroute (at a nice discount) and the effect is pretty similar to the cr*p that the legacy airlines serve up (and the seats are better than NEK, which should be declared against human rights, as they are a form of torture.). And you can change to an earlier flight, free, on your return leg…. try asking for that from a legacy and they will have a seizure.
Hail Vueling to the fray, if they come to LGW, that will increase competition by driving the product upwards.
Ryanair will continue to own the cost leadership spot.
