It's been going the rounds for a while Martin. I think the song title is 'Cheap Flights": fecking marvellous! A friend sang it at a Paddy's day session.
Would you believe it? Another budget airline is posting its ads below this box as I write!!

Subject: Lyr Add: CHEAP FLIGHTS (Fascinating Aida)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 31 Mar 11 - 11:06 AM

Here's my transcription from the video on YouTube. (Their subtitles made it easy.)

CHEAP FLIGHTS
As sung by Fascinating Aida

1. We received an invitation in the post one Monday morn
To attend our cousin's wedding in the town where we were born.
The do was back in Kerry, so wishing to be frugal,
We trawled the 'Net to find some decent travel deals on Google.
Cheap flights! Cheap flights! Cheap as they can be!
Bedad, we found an airline selling flights for 50p!
(Diddly aiden daidin daidin dai.)

2. Well, we clicked onto the website and were mightily surprised
To find the actual cost wasn't quite as advertised.
We'd forgotten airport taxes, had also to be billed,
But a bargain is a bargain and, begorrah, we were thrilled!
Cheap flights! Cheap flights! Stanstead to Tralee!
It isn't every airline offers flights for 50p.
(Diddly aiden daidin daidin dai.)

3. After studying the website, we decided it was best
To pay priority boarding so that we'd fit three abreast,
And of course we'd all have luggage, so that's an extra cost,
And then we paid insurance in case our cases might get lost.
Cheap flights! Cheap flights! It's obvious to see
There must be extra charges when the flights are 50p.
(Minya, minya, minya, key change)

4. At last the flight was flight was booked with all of the additions.
We'd read the reams of small print of terms and conditions,
And then picked up the charge for using VISA, which was drastic,
'Cause how the feck are you supposed to pay if not with fecking plastic?
Cheap flights! Cheap flights! We paid the fecking fee,
Because by now we were committed to the flights for 50p.
(Diddly aiden daidin daidin dai.)
(Someone's being diddled and it's us, so it is.)
(Ochone, ochone, aah...)

5. Now I don't know if you've tried locating Stanstead on a map,
But checking in at 5am is a fecking load of crap.
It's packed if you try to catch a train or underground,
So a taxi to the arse in the world was more than a hundred pound.
Cheap flights! Cheap flights! We should have gone by sea.
There's no such fecking thing as a fecking flight for 50p.
(Feckity, feckity, feckity, feckity, feck, feck, feck!)

6. Then at last we reached the airport where we had to pay a fine.
The fecking feckers charged us 'cause we hadn't checked in online,
And finally aboard the flight, there's an extra class of tax
'Cause the fecking, fecking feckers fecking charge to use the jacks.
Cheap flights! Cheap flights! I think you must agree
That only fecking gobshites think there's flights for 50p.
(Feck, shite, feck, shite, feck, shite, arse!)

(Sad verse:)
7. Well, finally we landed and tried to shuffle up the aisle,
But the steward sent us down to the back with never a hint of a smile,
And as we heard his announcement, our hearts gave a terrible thump:
"If you haven't prepaid to use the steps, you'll have to fecking jump."
Cheap flights! Cheap flights! You'll hearken unto me:
You're an eejit if you think a fecking flight is 50p.
(Feck!)

What she sings appears to be:

"And then, begob, they charged..."

Oh, forgot to say that my friend sang it in a church!
We duly washed her mouth out with Vim!

I only discoverd Fascinating Aida a few months ago when a friend sent me a link to that song. I think they are brilliant.
