Please don't post BS like this. It is a disservice and a violation of truth that science is supposed to hold sacred.
This is a non-story. There will be no $10 intercontinental flights. What there is, is a lack of price transparency, where consumers can easily know what the total cost of the trip is before booking or taking it.
The %tge of sub $10/€10/£10 flights likely to be actually available on a sustained basis without being able to be an internet contortionist, or having to travel at terrible days/times and to airports sometimes hundred's of miles from your actual stated destination, or being cheap one way only, has additional non-optional booking fees and surcharges - will in all reality be tiny.
Ryanair have 'history' with the UK's Advertising Standards authority, but no real worry as Smartplanet (and others) have picked up and churned their nonsense press release and ran with it, giving Ryanair tons of free publicity.
If they do get some long haul routes, they could probably expect to settle in on the sub £300/$400 return trip end of the market which could just about work.
