And to be fair to FR. if you are travelling with carry on only, and just looking for a last minute city break they are quite good. I have only used them twice but no problems, and no extra charges..( although i was travelling with an infant so get free priority boarding..and they were one of the most child friendly airlines ive flown with). You can get dates with no taxes payable ( or last trip to rome was £39.98 each with a £10 card processing fee, and £20 return for our daughter. so £110 all in for 3 of us return, BA was over £400). and during the booking process they are VERY transparent about HAVING to have your boarding pass pre printed, and about baggage weight.
