Define low cost carrierA low-cost carrier or low-cost airline (also known as a no-frills, discount orbudget carrier or airline) is an airline that generally has lower fares and lesscomforts. To make up for revenue lost in decreased ticket prices, the airlinemay charge for extras like food, priority boarding, seat allocating, and baggageetc.
Advantage of low cost carrier It saves you precious timeThis is one advantage that many find irresistible. Time is a very preciouscommodity today, and if you can fly for just a small increase in price comparedto a train journey, then it is definitely worthwhile. It promotes great vacationsTravel costs are a major part of anyone‟s holiday plans. when you find lowcost flights to your favorite destination, this mean you have more to spend andtherefore makes your vacation better. Uno finding low cost flights to yourfavorite destination, you would be thrilled because you get to have a greatholiday. It is extremely convenientOne of the most important of the advantages of low cost flights is theconvenience of travelling. You do not need to worry anymore about long andtiresome journeys by bus, train or car. This would invariably involve countlessdays on road, living out of a suitcase and staying in uncomfortable hotels. Theflight does away with all this inconvenience.
It saves moneyMany people compare only the flight ticket cost to the gasoline bill or busticket cost (or any other form of travel you choose). the difference would stillbe quite a lot, and therefore are happy that by choosing alternativemodes of travel they are saving some money. But is it so really. The advantages of low cost flightsThe advantage of low cost flights also include the fact that you would be ableto cover more ground and therefore helps you to be more productive. Besides,flying is fun and everybody Should experience it at one time or other and thelow cost flights offer you just the right opportunity to do so.
Disadvantages of Low Cost carrier Extra payment for baggage:Travelers must realize that practically everything apart from the actual flightticket costs extra. they will need to pay extra for hold baggage, and it cost oneperson nearly £100 to transport golf clubs. There is no charge for thosetravelling with only hand luggage, but this is becoming more difficult to do,owing to so many recent restrictions on hand luggage for airline flights. The high cost of food:Food and drink will not be provided on the plane unless the traveler pays.Some passengers have complained about the high cost of meals on board theseflights. It is quite possible to take one‟s own food on the flight, but again,carrying drink may be a problem due to restrictions on liquids which can becarried in hand luggage. Specific seatWith many of these airlines one cannot book a specific seat, and checking incan resemble a rug by scrum, with everyone trying to get a good seat. It canseem more like bus travel in the rush hour than airline travel!
Changing passenger detailsChanging passenger details and/or dates can prove very expensive or evenimpossible. It is essential to read the small print before booking. Quick changes of pricesPrices can change very quickly, even going up while the passenger is bookingon-line. Costs need to be checked carefully. Passenger worrying about economic situationFinally, with the recent worrying economic situation, more airlines areexpected to go bust. Many of these will be the low cost airlines. Passengersneed to make sure that they are aware of their rights if the airline does collapseafter they have booked a holiday. No frills:Overall, no frills airlines should be treated with care. They do indeed offerbargains, But travelling with them is not the same as booking a flight with amore established airline. It‟s worth bearing in mind that sometimes passengersget exactly what they pay for - no more, no less!

Stowing the wheelchair Once the traveller has been transferred out of his or her own wheelchair, it is either stowed on board or taken to an area where it can be prepared for stowage in the baggage compartment. In this case, it is either transported in an elevator in the terminal, or carried down the exterior stairs of the loading bridge. Wet cell batteries are disconnected and removed from power wheelchairs, then placed in specially designed boxes. Wheelchairs are usually put into heavy plastic bags, specially designed for the purpose, and positioned in a cargo container.
On-board services Once in an aircraft seat, responsibility for providing service to the traveller rests with the flight attendants. They will reposition the traveller, if requested; help with eating (e.g., opening packages, cutting food, etc.), but not feeding; transfer the traveller to an on-board wheelchair, and push him or her to the lavatory; and stow and retrieve carry-on luggage.
