A low-cost/no-frills airline (or LCC – Low-cost Carrier) is one that offers low fares by eliminating many traditional passenger services (eg free food onboard). Examples include easyJet and Ryanair. This type of airline contrasts with full-service airlines, which do offer such services, but charge higher fares (for example British Airways).
A charter airline is one on which seats are usually sold as part of a package holiday but any left over can be sold off to passengers booking independently. Examples include Thomson Airways and Thomas Cook Airlines. This is as opposed to scheduled airlines, where flights run to a set timetable with seats bought individually by passengers. This category encompasses both full-service and low-cost/no-frills airlines (so, for example, both British Airways and easyJet are scheduled airlines).
An adult, for the purposes of Mintel’s research, is anyone aged 16 or over.
