>Aer Lingus, Ole’?

>Welcome to bizarroland (aka the EU-US Open Skies agreement).

It’s the kind of world where the Irish flag carrier can fly between Washington and Madrid, with American staff.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out…next year.

    >the open skies agreement is meaningless without a push to force airlines to open up their slots at airports. ba, virgin, american and united will still dominate heathrow, for example. just because someone declares a feeding frenzy doesn’t mean we’ll be able to eat (as long as some very large pigs are already positioned in front of the trough). for this reason, i think we’ll see more alliances like the one proposed by aer lingus and united.
