If the flying time is short enough to make that part of it do-able, it is probably short enough that you would be better off time-wise (because remember with flying it's not the time that is spent in the air but time spent with security and just getting to the airport) and money-wise to simply drive.

RyanAir services Europe.
MANY of their flights are little hoppers frm UK to western EU, where driving is not really an option.

These are short flight, yes, but even on a short flight I still want to sit.
While i would be OK without a seat, i do not want to stand.
ANd whoever mentioned *Grandma* standing - every low budget EU flight on which I have been (Easyjet/Ryanair,Flybe) has boarded On STairs from the tarmac - so i do not know how/if they even board passengers with mobility issues.

peace & budget air
