I was intrigued by Primera Air new service from Newark to Paris and London. I’m hopeful that their service and comfort might be as promised, however, their now not so shocking price like all similar airlines can quickly cost 3-5 times more than advertised.
This is how it is with most of those ultra low carriers. The initial price balloons once you add a carryon bag, choose a seat or add a meal. On this case adding a carryon and a meal adds ~$90 to the price! I can’t deny that some might be able to make this work somehow. I prefer to pay more and not have to worry about all the crazy extra fees.
