However genteel it looks on the surface, Europe is a weird, weird place.

European discount airlines are a fine thing, and thanks to their existence I can fly around Europe for a third of what it cost a decade ago. However, they have certain disadvantages, the most annoying of which is that you have to check in somewhat earlier than is necessary with traditional airlines. However, there are other disadvantages, such that they use airports underneath which are buried fully armed and fueled Nazi fighter aircraft.
