maybe i have rose tinted spectacles, but i remember the lovely days of paying 50 pounds a flight zurich to gatwick about 6 years ago. could never imagine that any more.
Uh, do you mean a return flight ? Because I just paid about that (CHF130) each way for ZRH -> LHR -> ZRH and that was with BA, typically far from the cheapest available (but I'm trying to build up some Frequently Flyer points before June).

Gatwick was noticably cheaper than Heathrow - but we would well and truly make up the difference in flight costs getting from Gatwick to our friends in London, vs going from Heathrow.

Coming from Australia, it's incredible how cheap flying around Europe is. We originally had visions of catching the train all over the place "on the cheap", but it's far, far cheaper to fly (now we're more interested in the train to get more seat room and to avoid an hour or two at the airport departing and arriving).
