London Prestwick Airport

Budget airline Ryanair, known for flying to cheap airports hours away from the cities they nominally serve, has outdone itself. The airline ran ads in Norway offering flights to "London Prestwick" airport. Prestwick, on the outskirts of Glasgow, is 400 miles (and some 5 hours by train) from London, and technically not even in the same country; chances are that, if you're already at said airport, the quickest and cheapest way of getting to London would be to catch another flight.

Don't frighten me, man, I'm flying to Stockholm via Ryanair. I don't want to end up in a finnish airfield 50 miles from Jysvaskyla.

Well, at least in some cases, you get what you pay for. There's a reason why cheap flights are cheap...

Ha! And I thought JetStar were bad, flying to "Melbourne Avalon" aka. Geelong.
