Not entirely sure if this is the correct place to post this, so please feel free to move on if necessary. Its a fantastic oppurtunity for the airport and something that is along time overdue. Taken from Today's Independent: It's take-off as Knock lands first flights to the US A PLAN for Ireland's f...

Also to bear (this the right kinda bear?) in mind, list price from boeing and the price paid by Ryanair et al could differ significantly owing to size of order or the order book of Boeing at the time.

Excel Airways at OAT

Was wondering did any one apply? If so, have you been invited to Stage 2? And if so, when are you going and would you be interested in traveling out and preparing together.
In this regard has anybody any thoughts on these schemes as to what to expect and how to best prepare?

Thanks,

Raymond
