I'm a cheap person if i can afford to travel i will do so as cheap as i can if i get somewhere to sleep i go as cheap as i can within reason (internet etc needed) Life is easy when you are happy living with cheap stuff.

(which is why when i get the job i want making 80-100k a year i will be set since food,internet and rent will cost me like 40k a year xD)

More money for travelling for holidays and even then i want to be cheap


One bad thing about always penny-pinching is that when you screw up with money somewhere you'd feel doubly worse about it

"Oh no I spent so much time saving up this much ONLY TO HAVE IT RIPPED AWAY BY [insert random crap that costs a bunch of extra money here]"

You get to sit in a special cubby with no seatbelt and nowhere to store your carry-on (you must hold it).

You're totally screwed if you need to go to the bathroom.


Maybe they can sell the toilet seat

Stuck in the toilet for the whole flight except when someone has to go- then you get to wait in the toilet aisle for that duration only (because the toilet aisle would also be sold to the standing room only "seats")

I heard that for even less you can just be strapped to the wings of the plane.


That would affect the plane's aerodynamics and cost the airline extra in aviation fuel

What they could do is stick you in the wheel well and give you electric blankets and an oxygen mask

That's true but that's why you need to be tactical about it :D

Jokes aside: I sense higher baggage fees, with all bags being charged, including carry on.

Your basic fare could very well wind up costing the average flier more than coach. All while allowing the airline to advertise a lower price point.

When you said "Cargo class" my first thought was you would be crammed into the overhead carry on compartment.

Just wait that's step one, next they're going to have "Standing room only".


After that they stick you in the landing gear. When they land you just tuck and roll.

On the reverse side of things, since they got everyone who want to pay less in a mosh pit in the tail, they need to balance the weight so they offer a "Super First Class Experience Seating" Which is triple if not quadruple first class prices, has a ridiculous screening process, but you get to hang up front with the pilot/co-pilot, now in actuality your seating is way worse than first class, but you get to look out the big window (again in a way worse viewing than window seats, but hey you're rich and figured what the hell) and you thought it'd be cool and you could banter with the pilots, but they resent your presence and you're really uncomfortable, you want a refund, but the airline says no while laughing.

I wouldn't mind this for short trips, traveling with a single backpack worth of clothes. However, for longer flights 3+ hours i would go with a much more comfortable class.

That's not happening, because you need to be seated during takeoff, landing and turbulences.

The term basic doesn't sound right for some reason I think Economy Plus sounds better, although maybe Super Economy would make more sense. But those do sound kinda uncomfortable.


That would be false advertising since Economy Plus sounds like it's above Economy when it's BELOW.........

It's like buying Something Something Awesome Edition and getting a piece of poo



Yeah I guess your right.

I would totally sit in a box in cargo underneath the plane if it meant super cheap tickets.
