Ryanair to Offer No-Frills Flights Across the Pond?

Posted November 13, 2008 by Zak Patten

The BBC reports that for £8 we could have cheap flights to New York. Where do I sign!? What sane person wouldn’t want to feel like a superstar and go on a whirlwind weekend mini-break to the city that never sleeps? Shopping for labels at Macy’s department store, dining in the hottest restaurants and sipping on a Manhattan in the trendiest clubs in Manhattan? I certainly would. Heck, it's almost cheaper than taking the tube to Oxford Street.

Well this could be reality within a couple of years, as Ryanair’s CEO Michael O’ Leary has stated again that he wants to expand his airline’s network and offer low-cost flights from the U.K. and Ireland to the United States. Flights would be offered from Dublin and London to several cities including New York and Boston. Fares would start from as low as £6 per one-way and would go up as demand rises. However, as you currently do for Ryanair’s European flights, expect to pay extra for things like food, drinks, blankets, pillows, in-flight entertainment, seat assignment and probably worst of all, for checking in luggage. Oh, the horror! What to do with all those newly acquired designer outfits? Hmmm, maybe this no-frills flying isn't meant for jet-setters after all.
