Are low-cost carriers safe? Are the flights on time? How much leg room is there? Do you really have to pay for water? Can you get around the high baggage fees? What entertainment options are there?

I don't fly Emirates First Class or Thai Business Class for all my flights. On short hops, I usually book the cheapest ticket I can.
