What’s been your experience with European budget/country airlines? Talking IcelandAir, SAS, AirPortugal, etc. Wife and I are planning a trip to France and the US airlines are ridiculously expensive

icelandair is solid

Everything about IcelandAir is great except their WiFi sucks.

For instance, I’ve found round trip flights for $4-600 with the budgets while Delta, United, American are $1000+

FYI airlines like Swiss air are in no way the same as European budget airlines, that’s a standard full service carrier (just like SAS, TAP, KLM, Lufthansa, Turkish, etc.), not sure why they’re being lumped together here

like

TAP has been good to me

Where are you coming from? Europe isn’t that far away from the east coast so does it really matter how nice/good the airline is? As long as they get you there in one piece, with your bag, isn’t that good enough for an 8 hour flight?

TAP was great. My wife had a mixed experience on IcelandAir just cause they charge for food, etc.

I love SAS, but then again I’ve only flown their business class for work. Iceland air was good.

SAS and TAP are full service airlines

Heard great things about icelandair, flying with them to France in May. Cheap af

SAS is great, Icelandair pretty good. Recently flew Turkish air and was impressed

Swiss has awesome service, and decent saver fare availability for redemption bookings.
