Im in Chang mai at the moment, but I want to move into laos (luang prebang) in the next few days, does anyone know a cheap airline or am I in for a hellish 3 day boat journey :0(

Thanks for your help

You aren't in for a hellish boat journey. You are in for a nice relaxed trip down the Mekong and one of the highlights of the country. Its all about attitude. Take a long book and enjoy the ride. I'm not pretending that its a confortable ride though, your ass will get sore. But it's still enjoyable.
Or you can risk your life and get the trip over with in a day on a speed boat.

You can fly with Lao Airlines - as far as I remember it is $80 and only takes an hour. You can buy tickets from any travel agent in Chiang Mai.
