That's how they can stay afloat in business in the long term so that everyone can enjoy a short breaks & benefit very cheap fares with no frills. Business is tough as it is already with the credit crunch & high fuel costs with most companies cutting back with redundancies to stay afloat, cutting back on some routes, etc. Wouldn't surprise me that even the bigger airlines may have to consolidate with other airlines just to stay in business. Check out BA's situation at the moment. I still think in some ways, Michael O'Leary have revolutionised the European aviation industry with cheap fares and no frills for everyone. It's just that everyone expects the moon on a stick for a low fare. Looking back 10-15 years ago, the whole picture would have been very different. Would anyone like a cheap break for a decent fare? Unless someone came up with a new innovate business model & business thinking, the whole European aviation industry would have been stagnant & we all could be paying for a higher fare even for a short break. Remember some passengers don't take many luggage, need food & drink, watch films, etc during a short flight. Why would one passenger pay for someone's personal needs for the benefit of someone else. We all know that stuffing your car with extra junk in the back boot will make a difference on extra weight & fuel costs. Even the airline pilot has to calculate if the extra fuel is required before the flight takes off because fuel does weigh the aircraft down & don't foget the cargo underneath your seats. Same principle but different transport. The extra costs like card payment charges does cost every company not just airlines alone. Did you know that for every card transaction, a percentage of this goes towards the card merchants like VISA & Mastercard. So not all goes towards the airlines balance books. Even cheques cost companies to cash in let alone cards & that's per cheque. Oneway or another every company has to make a business decision on how the extra charges are to be paid by the consumer.

As a direct result of these surcharges I've very quickly learned to pack light and only take cabin luggage.

I also now always....
1. Roll up a cloth bag and put that in so that once through security I can buy stuff from the shops like a book and bits for the flight.
2. Take solid shampoo and conditioner bars from Lush not liquid shampoo to save space on the liquids allowance
3. Buy toothpaste etc from the airport once through security

im confused... heres a quote from bmi website:

"Looking for a quick getaway this summer? Then look no further! bmibaby have last minute deals on sale, where flights start from a low £34.99 one way incl. taxes and charges to some exciting European destinations. They are available for travel from Birmingham, Cardiff, East Midlands and Manchester throughout the month of August."

So is it only from these 4 airports or from others too. ive tried a few from edinburgh and they are full price

any one had any luck with ema or birmingham flights ??? were looking for 5-9 sep or 19-21 26-29th give us a shout if anyone has had any joy

not bad deals but loads more expensive then ryan air ie about 2or3 times more
