A newbie type query on intra-Europe air travel

Jump to last reply

I am far from new here, but I am a tad concerned about taking economy air carriers within Europe. We have always traveled within Europe by train, but our trip coming up in October includes cities too far flung for train travel.

From London to Florence, we are looking at Meridiana (which I am so clueless about that I am not totally sure if that is the airline's name or a service like Travelocity!) and from Milan to Paris we are looking at Easyjet, which charges <$100 (as opposed to AirFrance's cost of >$600!)

So can people offer assurance to a slightly nervous flyer that these carriers use "normal" planes and are OK to fly on? I know, I know, a stupidly naive question but that is where I am when it comes to air travel within Europe.....
