Budget Airlines: Not so Cheap When the Add-Ons Add Up
Low-cost airlines have attention-grabbing headline prices that seem an obvious money-saving choice. What budget airlines don't always show is how these prices are not always what they seem due to "price deconstructing" to appear lower.
With this model, budget airlines show a base price that usually does not include basic add-ons, such as in-flight meals, seats, and luggage allowances.
refund.me, the passenger rights service provider, broke down the costs to offer a side-by-side comparison and Infographic highlighting how budget airline 'hidden' charges boost ticket prices.
