Travelling by air isn’t what it used to be. Before the advent of budget airlines, catching a flight used to be something of a treat, even if you were travelling economy class. There was none of this charging for luggage nonsense, and you were offered free food and drink while on board. You could even fill your boots with as much alcohol as you liked, assuming of course that you did not become too drunk.
These days, all of that has changed. Travelling by air now is something to be endured rather than enjoyed, unless that is you can afford the expense of travelling business class. The upside of this of course is that air travel is now an awful lot more affordable than it used to be, meaning that people from sections of society that might not ever have even seen the inside of a plane first-hand can travel to various European destinations for a cheap summer holiday.
But the budget airline model demands scale. Budget airlines need to pack in the passengers and make as many flights a day as they safely and legally can with the fleet that’s available to them. The fact that these companies push their resources to the limit can mean that passengers might be put at risk of being involved in an accident that was not their fault.
