To amend the damage, Ryanair is doing the right thing by offering one-way flights from the United Kingdom for cheaper than a sandwich at Pret A Manger. The fares, which are available for flights departing from October through February, don't include fees for baggage, but the airline is waving its usual $17.50 tax charged for bookings. Flight options include London to Strasbourg, France for £7.99 (about $10), London to Barcelona, Spain for £14.99 (about $20), and Edinburgh to Milan, Italy for £14.99 (about $20), among many others.
However, you'll still need to get from the United States to one of the origin cities in the UK before you can take advantage of the stupidly low prices, which could set you back a bit more. But given that $200 flights across the pond are fast becoming an industry standard, you could potentially see yourself traversing much of the European continent for the price of a movie ticket if you manage to get there. That sounds like a worthwhile apology if you ask us.
