Now that’s what I call a budget airline

Thanks to Stefan for this:

A no-frills budget airline brand is sending shivers down Romania’s flagship carrier Tarom. This airline is so cost-conscious that it didn’t even bother to come up with an entirely original identity. Aping the more famous JetBlue it is named Blue Air and doesn’t give a nickel on subtleties like brand – what they currently use for this purpose is a pitiful ersatz as far as their web site and radio ads are concerned.

They do, however, manage to cut prices by a whopping 50 to 70%, and that’s what really seems to count. If they don’t flop or get acquired, I hope to fly them once and see what kind of travel experience they provide.

    In response to the situation above, some of Tarom’s domestic fares have recently dropped by as much as 90%. What used to cost close to EUR 100 may now cost as little as EUR 10.

    Don’t we just love the free market?
