    Not sure how I missed this thread [​IMG]

    I would highly recommend Wizz Air, they fly A320s with all-leather seats. Their airplanes are pink but just ignore that [​IMG]

    Please, for the love of God, do not fly Ryanair or EasyJet. Ick.

    Wizzair is purple, not pink. I haven't used EJ yet, but they have a BUD - NAP flight that I will get acquainted with next weekend [​IMG]

    Purple, pink, same thing. They don't fly here so I don't need to know [​IMG]

    Ryanair will be flying to the US soon. God help us all. At least it will be on new airplanes.

    I can see O'Leary now- "Legroom?! We don't need no stinking legroom. Make stand up seats and pack 500 people into a 767."

    I am so jealous of you Europeans with your cheap airlines. I can't remember the last time I paid less than $250 for a plane ticket, it's been years.

    I haven't heard anything about Germanwings, they don't seem bad at all though. Other photographers that have flown them said they were good. This is the standard interior- http://www.airliners.net/open.file/0886001/M/ They also have 5 special-painted jets, The Bearbus, Mhhh, Bader-Wurttemburg, T-Mobile, Cologne Airport, and the SF's favorite, Hamburg Shopper [​IMG] Bearbus- http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1201771/M/ Bader-Wurttemburg- http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1202328/M/ T-Mobile- http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1202330/M/ Cologne Airport- http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1201366/M/ Hamburg Shopper- http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1201302/M/ JB

    I've flown BMI quite cheaply on LHR-NAP and LHR-DUB and found them to be decent, but I don't know if they're a discount airline.

    I have used germanwings a few times on CGN - FCO flights. The on- board service is okay, but nothing special, the seats are quite comfortable and there is enough legroom.

    OK so I was an idiot...it was SkyEurope, not EasyJet. SkyEurope gets very high marks from me, but I don´t see how they can make any money with about 30 people on a flight. Big bonus is being able to confirm a seat at checkin; I am going to get my name engraved on 12D for BUD - NAP [​IMG] Their stewardesses are sufficiently hot and their seats recline more than any of the other low cost airlines I have used.

    I haven't heard anything bad about SkyEurope, let us know how their service is! They also have an airplane with a huge picture of a hot lady on the side, I'll get a picture for you later.

    Heh, nice. I slept through the service in both directions. The stewardess who was giving the seat belt buckle demonstration in front of me was flirtatious for the few minutes before I fell asleep. That's all I need for service on a short hop.
