Kind of. While the sexy, sub-$500 fares might get you clicking around the interwebs looking for things to do in Venice, you're probably not going to get a full-service traditional flying experience at that price.
The unbundling of airfares isn't just relegated to the world of basic economy domestic flights. Most of those super-cheap fares you see are just to get you from A to Barca as a piece of human cargo.
"Airlines make up the cost because back in the day, you got an assigned seat, you got a meal, you got booze, you got a free bag," Fisher says. "You're not getting that with these fares."
The airlines have also compressed spaces to pack in more people. WOW and Norwegian's regular coach seats have about 30 or 31in of pitch -- the distance between a point on one seat and the same point on the seat before or behind it. Emirates, as a point of reference, has about 34in of pitch in coach. So if you want that level of "comfort," you'll have to pay for their "premium" seats.
