Honest Airline Reviews: What it's like to fly the world's budget airlines
Safety is obviously our number 1 priority, but provided the airline has a decent safety record we're willing to try all types of airlines and planes all the way from the Boeing A-380 to a De Havilland Canada Dash 8-400 from Palawan to Cebu in the beautiful Philippines.
Budget Airlines Europe
Flying within Europe is cheaper than anywhere else in the world. You can find cheaps flights in Europe from as little as €1 thanks to budget airlines like RyanAir, Easyjet, WizzAir, GermanWings, AirBaltic and more.
But flying with Europe's budget carriers comes with a caveat: a lot of the extra comforts you might have become accustom to are gone.
Factor in the cost of stowed luggage and sometimes even carry-on bags. Don't expect a meal on any budget airline and be prepared to ride a bus to your plane then board via stairs: this is the norm in Europe.
Our airline reviews explain what it's like to fly these airlines, what the baggage situation involves, how to avoid all the extra fees and more tips.

Not like - would you like to sit in Row 1 for $20 or do you want extra legroom?
More like, 'oh, you don't want to make a seat reservation? That's a shame because our system has allocated you to Row 6 but your spouse will be in Row 46. Are you sure you wouldn't like to sit together for €8 each?'
