Sometimes I ask my self, how do this wonderfull airlines manage to have fares sometimes upto 50% lower than regular ones. either there is a hidden trick, or regular airlines are overcharging way too much.
Well the truth is none of the above, the truth is that the low cost concept is a total scam, full of hidden and overpriced fees pf which you end up as their victim, once you at the airport hostage of a situation without anyone to assist or protect you rights.
So you buy the concept of low cost airlines, go to their websites and find EUR 55 fares to fly from Paris to Riga and another x amount of Euros to connect to Stockholm. You get excited, and that is when you fell in the trap. Even people like me, avid travelers sometimes get screwed airlines like this.
