After flying 3000 miles for £515 with Norweigan Airlines coming over from London Gatwick the best I could do for return flights from New York to Ottawa Canada was £920! Thats two people flying 400 miles there and 400 miles back at double the cost! It was a pleasant enough trip in the small (60 - 70 seater) plane but the cost per mile per person was 8 times the cost of the long haul flight. ALSO I was warned whilst booking the transatlantic flight you must get an ESTA. There was no warning for the Canadian equivalent (EST?) and we spent a terrible 35 mins furiously typing our details into a laptop at the Newark Airport hoping to be allowed into Canada. Be warned and get that form filled in before flying.
