Wow Air will be offering flights to Europe from St. Louis for discount prices. You can get to Iceland for $99, then catch connecting flights to other places in Europe. For that price, Iceland sounds like a nice destination.
There’s a catch, though.
The airline’s founder says that they can offer low rates because they only charge for what you use. According to the Post-Dispatch, you would be able to get a round-trip ticket from St. Louis to Paris for $499.98; that includes the ticket and one personal item. For $690.50, the same flight would also include a carry-on bag and a checked bag. Still no meal, though—that would be extra.
Pretty soon airlines might as well just make this their motto: Airfare $99. Seat extra.
