A very simplistic statement re: the US situation Cosmic (and i usually agree with most of your good postings on this board). When i come across regional airports in Ireland with ILS's, gleaming terminals, etc... i often ask myself who pays for it. Guess who? The Irish taxpayer... through capital gra...

... 'File on Line' has not been available for the past year.

A daft move by the IAA to remove this facility - it saved their folks a lot of manhours taking phone calls relating to submission of flight plans.

Sounds like you are unnecessarily buying two seperate legs (Belfast to Newark... and Newark to Orlando)? Have you tried putting Belfast to Orlando as one journey into the Continental website to see what fare they offer? If you look for a fare quote this way, it usually works out cheaper than buying ...

Be aware that some of the above websites don't include low-cost carriers in their searches (eg - jetblue, airtran, etc..). It is also my experience that the cheapest fares can be found by booking directly thru the airlines that operate transatlantic out of Dublin - and connect to your final destinat...

The last Aer Lingus flight into Orlando is next week - 14th Jan. I presume this aircraft is now being assigned to operate the new Dubai route.

This has got to be a joke? Weston must be the only GA airfield in Europe to have such a system... Without radar trace or noise monitoring equipment (which they don't have), infringement of noise abatement proceedures becomes very subjective in my opinion. Agreed... another nail in the coffin for GA ...

Best of luck with the website guys - however not including. VAT in the display price is a pain in the neck (you've gotta click on the item)... not good page design.

Keep it simple lads... list the full price (incl VAT).
