What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

Budget airlines - horror stories?

    Interestingly @vok, I just today booked my one way flight from London to Nice and found British Airways was the cheapest. I also find it's much nicer flying with them. They treat passengers like passengers, as opposed to inconvenient freight which is how I usually find the other two sometimes can feel like.

    Ryan Air was the most expensive at around £70, easyJet was quoting around £56 and BA cost £42 (though this included a£10 airmiles reduction).

    Not exactly a low-cost airline but Air New Zealand are planning to fit out its cattle class with flat beds to bunk down on during the long-haul flights. There is even an idea to get this Skynet bookable for short sessions. I think it can catch up given the reasonable price. What do you think?

    I can imagine for any flights from New Zealand this will be a huge attraction @Vok. I think every long-haul flight should have them. I wouldn't mind paying a bit more for the comfort. Though I can sleep sitting up, I always wake up with a crick in my neck. And I sleep so much better if I can get horizontal.
