Cheap flights to France!

Over the last 6 years, I've flown to France (Carcassonne mainly) on many occasions. The only operator to this small regional airport in the southwest of France is Ryanair, and as a result I've flown with them more than any other airline. Most of the times, it's been from East Midlands, and as my next French Holiday looms, I thought I'd fish out some of my best Ryanair pics...

On final over Carcassonne

At this point however, the view from the other side is better:

So thats Ryanair, East Midlands and Carcassonne! I suppose, despite the terrible legroom, hideous cabins and unpleasant competitiveness (see the "bye bye" jets), Ryanair do fly to convenient local airports, and best of all, they are, most the time, dirt cheap!
