Thanks for replying-
so I wrote airhitch an email, asking a question, and they freaked out and told me my mentality was not correct for airhitching or something like that. I thought I was looking for a flight, not joining a cult...!!!!
Anyways, here is the message cause I think its kinda funny, but its long so skip it if you dont have time!

Why only RyanAir? By this mindset, you are LIMITING YOUR OPTIONS; but
wise Airhitcher EXPANDS his/her options to the max.
>I need to book this flight soon,...
What makes you think this? (You are wrong: you do NOT need to book this
flight soon. You possibly don't need to book ANY flight, EVER. Trust
composite years [and HUNDREDS of years if you "lay us end-to-end"] of
experience doing this, when we tell you this.) If you don't KNOW what
you think it, we have a suggestion for a reason; and we can also tell
why WE think the opposite. Let us know.

No...we can't tell you that. But you don't need to know it, either. It
doesn't matter, at this point, if what you want to do is MINIMIZE YOUR
TOTAL COST and NOT LOCK YOURSELF INTO COMMITMENTS which will be
costly to break, should you need to break them, for your Atlantic

All cities are NOT equally likely (or rather, NO city can get you back
the States, only an airplane can do that!); but, at this point, NONE OF
THIS MATTERS. Trust our 35 composite years (and HUNDREDS of years if
"lay us end-to-end"!) of experience doing this when we tell you you are

You don't need to get a ticket -- at least certainly not at this point,
probably never. This stuff all just "takes care of itself" as you go

Having a preference always helps, but doesn't necessarily influence
>I really appreciate the possibility of getting cheap tix, thanks,
Except that, you have thoroughly misunderstood
our entire system if you
think it's going to get you "cheap tix". That's not what it's about. If
want "cheap tix" we suggest you go to sites like "cheaptix.com", if
is such a site, or if not, then sites with similar names like
"cheaptickets.com" or "cheapfares.com" or "lowfares.com". But of course
you do you will find that NONE of those sites really gives you "cheap"
because THERE IS NO SUCH THING. Tickets always make flying MORE
not less...that's why they're THERE. And that's why we AIRHITCH® --
ticketlessly -- by hitching rides on airplanes!
