easyJet westard-ho

Jump to last reply

From the BBC, another indication that Europe's no-frills airlines want to go trans-Atlantic.
easyJet, second biggest of the cheapo carriers, is going to link with Norwegian, a significant newcomer across the Atlantic, and WestJet, Canada's second largest airline which has recently expanded to trans-ocean flights itself. The original budget model was for each flight to operate individual legs, with no connections to anything including the airline's other flights. The BBC suggests that integration won't be complete, lacking automatic transfer of luggage. Still, expanding competition should keep prices down. It also reminds that misty (and mostly mythic) memories of elegant airline cruising are as long-gone as the biplane.
