    and I used to think Ryanair was bad.



    I've just been trying to get reasonably priced flights from Cork to Venice. Ryanair have no flights from Shannon on the dates we want so I am having to be a bit creative. I was sussing out going via Prague and I happened on the name of "Alpi Eagles" who were quoting me a special price of €19 per person per trip, Prague to Venice. "Great Stuff!" said I and pressed continue.


    The taxes and extras were as follows:


    Adult tax: €25.32 Baggage Tax : €10.00 Airport Tax: €73.24 Local Taxes : $ 10.00


    Carrier Surcharge: € 136.00Fuel Surcharge: €312.00


    A total of € 563.76 in additional charges to a fare of€152.00

          But if the flight is cancelled, do you get your 19 euros back?

              Piquet, when you're done booking flights, can you do your public duty and notify everybody else of what flights you are on so that they can be avoided.[img]smileys/lol.gif[/img]

                  I think Ryanair get bad press. They advertise as a low cost airline and then people complain when they are not getting first class service.[img]smileys/c&#111;nfused.gif[/img]

                        Try flying into Milan and getting the train across to venice - very quick and perhaps a little moreaffordable
