European low cost carrier Ryanair announced earlier this week that they planned to expand its routes to include flights from London's Stansted airport as well as Dublin Airport to the eastern US, possibly to Boston. In addition they announced that Flights would be offered at the incredible price of around $13.00 + tax USD ! (This deal would be for economy class only). The word going around is that this is too good to be true.
The catch: it seems that Ryanair has this in the planning stages and it is contingent upon acquiring additional planes on the cheap to fly the proposed routes. According to the Boston Globe it may be 12-18 months before this new service becomes a reality.
Considering the exorbitant fares on US-UK routes, it would be a breath of fresh air even if we have to wait a little while.
