Noteworthy Mentions: SkyEurope, Isle of Man, Vueling

Today SkyEurope announced the release of 99,000 promotional all-inclusive €29 fares. “All-inclusive” here means that taxes and fees won’t pounce out at the final step of your online transaction. This promotion is good for travel between November 1 and December 15. Tickets can be purchased through October 7. In the past, we’ve struggled to find very many good fares during these SkyEurope promotional sales; nonetheless, this one is certainly worth a look.

Isle of Man Travel Services is trying to drum up off-season interest in the Irish Sea island with some holiday packages. Noteworthy: a £135 per person package for two nights at the Sefton Hotel, including sea transportation from either Heysham or Liverpool and all additional taxes, or £170 for an identical package but with an extra night thrown in. Ultracheap? No, but not bad for a longish weekend in the pricey British Isles.

Meanwhile, Spanish low-cost carrier Vueling is having some serious troubles. Last week, Air Scoop alerted us to the possibility that Vueling might soon change its pricing model. Subsequently, trading on Vueling shares has been halted. Things are looking wobbly.
