    If only they took the taxes away which is often more expensive than the flight itself when you look at the breakdown before paying, then it would be a lot more affordable

                Good tips. Very enlighteneing. However travelling can be expensive, But with my agent, it's not. That's why i would also recommend webghost for all types of airline fare hacks and accomodation. Travel round the world for almost half the price of the initial price. I experienced this topnotch services when i booked First Class tickets and hotel reservations at cheaper rates when i travelled to Auckland,New Zealand in July. Webghost saved me about $2000 off my expenses. They also save you lesser time and stress which is why i can recommend to anyone..

                  That's true. I was skeptical at first. I heard he can hack into any system and reduce prices of things. I can't believe it when i travelled First class to Dubai with my family in February. I spent about $4800 lesser the usual amount i normally spend. However yall can contact him right away

                They get you on the excess baggage and drinks, probably avg $20-$30 per passenger depending on the flight. Make 2x profit from 1st class as well.

                                      You calculated the crew salaries per hour... And then you added them for the whole flight...

                                              Flying may be expensive in the US but in Europe, you can get a return flight from Manchester, UK to Barcelona, Spain (about 1000miles each way) for as little as £55/€65 return

                                                    Whether the flight is full or empty,that flight has to travel to that destination.If the flight isn't full the ticket prices get reduced so they can recouperate some money back.Even at a loss.This is why you get last min deals.Charging €20 for a seat that could be empty is better than 0 dollars.

                                                                                There are actually only very few seats on the plane sold at that rate, so you will only be able to get that price when you order your tickets way ahead. Airlines are using something called price discrimination to make their profits. While persons like you, who know way ahead that they want to go to a certain place, most times for vacation or something similar, are baited by extremely low fares, those who have to go somewhere on short notice, like almost all non-leisure travelers do, are paying as much as the airline can get out of them.

                                                                                Just check the travel portal of your choice for that Amsterdam - London trip and ask for a departure tomorrow, then you will see what the real price looks like. The cheapest flight I found was to be had at 335,- Euro, and that is already a bargain.
