German officials celebrate doubled Twitter character limit
Twitter is rolling out a 280-character limit for almost all its users, abandoning its iconic 140-character limit for tweets. By removing that hurdle, Twitter is hoping people will tweet more, drawing more users in.
The fare has been launched to celebrate its new service from Stansted to JFK International, via Reykjavik, which begins on April 2018. Flights now start at $99-one-way from JFK to popular European cities, including Paris, Frankfurt, Dublin, Copenhagen, Berlin, Amsterdam, and London.
The budget carrier does charge additional fees for amenities like entertainment and beverages, however, which can add to the cost of a flight.
The company is also interested in acquiring collapsed airline Monarch's slots at Gatwick for flights between Iceland and London, Mogensen said. Actually, catches: The $99 fares are limited and the airline charges extra for nearly everything, including carry-on and checked luggage, meals and snacks, phone booking, and more.
In 2015, the airline began flying to Boston, its first USA destination.
