Europe's had it fair share of super-cheap discount airlines for quite some time now. But soon we will see the RyanAir / EasyJet model hit the skies over Columbus, Ohio. Skybus is set to make its debut next month and while most of their tickets will be about 50% cheaper than their competitors, they are also offering 10 one-way tickets on every flight for just $10. This means if you play your cards right you could score a ticket from Columbus to Richmond, VA for a mere $40.80 including tax - not too shabby. You can currently book online for about ten cities around the US, as far west as Oakland and Bellingham (100 miles from Seattle) as far south as Fort Lauderdale. Like its European brothers, Skybus charge for just about everything from pillows to checked bags. At $10 a flight the company's CEO, Bill Diffenderffer is trying to attract the true cheapskates out there: "We want to stimulate people to travel who otherwise would not go."
