I am trying to plan out my vacation to Italy. One of the hard parts about the trip is that we want to go from Southern Italy to Northern Italy. Taking a train could take several hours and sitting in a train is not my idea of a fun vacation. So we decided to look online to see if there were any cheap flights from Naples to Italy. I figured there might be some sort of deal like Southwest Airlines which offers really cheap flights within California.
So I went to Expedia to search for a deal. I was not really expecting anything really cheap but figured it was at least worth a search. What I found I still can't quite believe. I bought two tickets from Naples to Italy for $67. That is not $67 each. That is $67 TOTAL. What seems even odder is that the taxes and fees for the flight are $65. That means the tickets were $1 each! The tickets are from what seem to be a reputable airline, Meridiana, so I'm at a loss to understand how a flight can be so cheap. To compare, every other flight listed on Expedia with other carriers were for $330 each.
So what do you think? Am I going to show up at the airport only to fly I'm going to fly in the luggage compartment?
