We thought it would be a good time to explain why they charge for extras, and more importantly, why they give incredible value for money.

When we first moved to Lanzarote, neither Easyjet nor Ryanair flew here. Our choice was GB Airways (later they became part of British Airways) and a service called Monarch Scheduled. Those flights followed the time honoured flying experience:  read more »
