you can fly budget from London (easy jet) or Budapest (wizzair). some national carriers like BA, Lot or Lufthansa have frequent promotions. Baltic Air, etc... But the costs on the ground can be prohibitive. Food, going out - this is so expensive! And I often hear people outraged how they were treated at the border control. This is especially true while departing Israel and as the last memory, leaves a bad taste! That could be easily fixed I am sure!
