I'm surprised so many people like being cramped on longhaul flights. With WOW and Norwegian they seem to be okay with it, but it'd be too much for me.
They don't like being cramped, they like saving money and if being slightly more uncomfortable then a reg airline seat for a couple hours saves a couple hundred dollars then its worth it for many people.

I hear that, I guess it comes down to how much cheaper they are.

1) I have just stumbled upon the fact that Ryanair sells UX flights to MAD ex-BOS,JFK, and MIA on their website.
2) Ryanair now has many routes servicing KBP and LWO, including STN, MAN, and BUD. That is awesome!

How useful is that? It helps to be able to book connecting flights in Europe on one ticket?

Ryanair is starting to sell connecting tickets, and rumors that they will partner with DY

Right. I remember reading that they wanted to form an alliance of the low cost carriers in Europe so that they could better compete with the legacy carriers on long haul flights.

Take AF. It's a mainstream airline so it's more secure in terms of delays, cancellations, miles earning, etc.

Then I guess it's AF. Thanks.
Now I just have to make sure it's not flybe and it's actually AF that's flying, not a partner airline.

Can anyone comment on Easy Jet check-in process and how strict they are with baggage? Planning to fly them for the first time (Never flew a lost cost carrier before, not Spirit or Frontier in the States either)
Their carry-on policy is one bag 56x45 the standard rolling carry on. Wondering if they are sticklers or tend to give a hard time with published allowance in an attempt to collect $$?
Route is VIE to LGW, if the specifics count.
Thanks in advance

I've heard they're strict, but I've also heard that about Ryanair and didn't find that to be the case.

YMMV.

We traveled as a group of Bochurim (= maximising free carry-on luggage allowances) a few times on easyJet and others a couple years back. We never had an issue with them or actually any low cost airline about carry-ons. Only had an issue with Wizzair in Vilnius Airport, and even then we got out of it somehow.

Can't vouch for any airline these days, as they may be more strict now.
