More Atlantic competition

A trip report on the Europe forum mentioned a bargain price on Arkefly from Florida to Europe. Here's what I found out about this newcomer to the trans-Atlantic trade. Florida-Amsterdam is the only route being offered, twice a week. The former charter service, under a new names, is part of the giant European travel company TUI. Like others trying to offer low-cost services in the crowded Atlantic market – notably Norwegian – it appears to be betting that the B-787 Dreamliner is cheaper to operate. The European budget formula also breaks down services such as luggage and meals for individual fees. Here is the company website: http://www.arke.nl/vliegtickets/ustravelers/

Here is the original (very long) trip report: http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/trip-report-eight-days-in-amsterdam-and-belgium.cfm
