Except for the biggest like Ryanair, Easyjet, Norwegian, and AirBerlin, the rest have a pretty high turnover — meaning, they’ve tended to go out of business after a short run, or consolidate with other airlines so the name is no longer valid, routes change, etc.

Skyscanner and Whichbudget will find them. Dohop is also good and will combine “big” airlines with “low-cost” airlines in constructing viable fares.

On the discount transatlantic front, IcelandExpress used to fly to New York – it seems they stopped. I hated them – and no real reason to exist since IcelandAir is dirt cheap.

IcelandExpress is now WoW!!!!
Got a email from them, they are going to restart the Boston route starting this summer. I thought the concept was quite good but I guess no one else did.

Yes, they sent me an email. I had deleted it but let me see, I doubt it, of course. As a matter of fact, I responded as to why Boston and not Newark. They responded…and said they do not have any plans for adding NY/NJ,
wonder why Boston???
Have you checked their website?

Introductory tickets were really really cheap. For a day, I was thinking on it and looked into the option of taking the Acela Newark to Boston and then taking the flight.
Then looking at the practicality, i just find it un-suitable for the time and money wasted.

There are some other good ones, that are somewhat regional, meaning don’t fly everywhere but rather out from a few large hubs:

Wizzair – www.wizzair.com
Vueling – www.vueling.com
Volotea – www.volotea.com
AirOne – www.airone.com
Transavia – www.Transavia.com
BlueAir – www.BlueAir.com

And for finding the next cheapest destination if your are flexible on the order of countries you visit, Drungli (www.drungli.com) is perfect.
