A question for the travel agents (and experienced Niki flyers) out there.
I'm wanting to fly one way from Bucharest to Moscow in May 2011. There are no direct flights on this sector on any airline, and the cheapest and most appealing option is Fly Niki via Vienna for approx US$160 compared to $300 plus on Finn Air and Malev.
Using the Fly Niki website, I am able to purchase a ticket that has only a 40min connection in Vienna.
Dep Bucharest - 10:05
Arr Vienna - 10:30
Dep Vienna - 11:10
Arr Moscow - 15:45
My question is - will 40mins be enough? Would Fly Niki assist me if the flight from Bucharest was delayed? Being an experienced traveller, I know most airlines wouldn't - but then most airline websites would either get you to book each flight seperately, and then put the responsiblity on you to ensure you had long enough to connect flights - or give you more options with longer layovers (if they had more than one flight a day to Moscow, which Fly Niki doesn't).
I'm keen to book - but I don't want to waste my money if I end up being delayed and have to fork out more cash if I'm stuck in Vienna with only one flight a day on Fly Niki, or wait 24 hours for the next flight.
