Knowing if traveling abroad there is no loss, the world's LCC and enchanting international long-haul routes

No way, I never imagined that an era of using airplanes in the sense of getting on the bus would come. LCC which abbreviated "English" Low Cost Carrier "realizes an incredible low price flight due to thorough cost reduction, increasing the presence in the world sky.

Hello,Takuya Sudo @ circle around the world bicycle @ Charridermanis. In 2014, there was also the last sport of the trip and there were many airplane movements, and it took care of LCC several times. Looking at the LCCs around the world, the next line seems to be interesting from next. It was very interesting, so I tried to group them all together. If LCC's international long-haul route can be used successfully, the journey will proceed smoothly.

◆ What is LCC?
Reflects the result of numerous streamlining such as flight reservation for the Internet, unification in seats' economy class, fee charged for checked baggage, abolition of in-flight meals, etc. in the fare. With low price as a weapon, LCC has achieved remarkable growth all over the world. There are many airlines in this time, but since there are airlines with checked baggage charged or paying by credit card transaction fee, please give me a reference level to the last.

As LCC reserves earlier, the price of the ticket is lower, so it is a good idea to advance at a stretch once you make a plan. You can not miss the promotion of commemorative sale who did not care about profitability. By the way, in creating this article, the Wikipedia English version of the airline companyList of destined citiesIt was very convenient.
