In July Icelandic provider Primera Air introduced plans to fly to fly to Newark and Boston from Birmingham, London Stansted and Paris Charles de Gaulle in 2018 utilizing Airbus A321neos.
I’m undecided why Primera hasn’t been on my radar. Norwegian and Wow Air garner a lot of the consideration as transatlantic discounters.
But L.B.Okay. factors out that they’re promoting $99 transatlantic tickets. Here’s Newark – London Stansted. This service begins April 19th.
Now that is their ‘light’ fare. And it’s fairly draconian, it’s not like a primary financial system fare the place when you’re onboard you’re handled like everybody else. Your fare determines whether or not you even get a meal or not.
A checked bag, selecting your seat, and a meal prices you $90 extra which is a major bounce. I’m undecided how massive the market is for $99 transatlantic one-ways with cling baggage solely. And the return flight might be greater, as European departures often are.
Boston – Stansted costs from $99 as properly as soon as that service begins May 18. Paris flights are greater.
