Returning a bit to its roots as a discount carrier, AirBerlin is introducing a number of new fares starting May 5 (with some previews already for lucky travelers). The key one for bargain hunters is called JustFly; it comes with a seat and that's it. You get one carry-on, no checked bags and access to 1,000,000 seats on short to medium European flights starting at 44€ each.
It's part of AirBerlin's turnaround strategy; after its development into a full-scale carrier and OneWorld member, it's found tough sledding financially. It's benefiting these days from a hefty investment and partnership with Etihad.
