Perhaps the Ryanair site is now run by Navitaire, but when it was first set up it was by students and cost about 15k.

Or perhaps it's just the FR publicity department spinning again!

Urban legends anyone?

Nothing wrong with The Guvnor's postings. That's why he is THE GUVNOR !!

As regards MOLs desire to unilaterally slash landing fees, good luck to him. I'd love to see his face when Aer Rianta impound his a/c pending payment of of outstanding fees (which I hope they will do). The guy is nothing more than a daylight robber (like his greek counterpart at sleazyJet). MOL doesn't want to pay landing fees, doesn't want to pay his crew decent salaries. I bet he hasn't slashed his personal salary yet. Perhaps he should relocate to Vietnam where people are still happy to be paid a bowl of rice for a day's work. Uncle Ben's Express ?

Yeah, did you see the photo of him in the Irish Sunday Independant business section?

He was attending the thoroughbred sales at Goffs. Big 'ceegar' in one hand, sales program in the other, and none other than Tony Ryan himself with an avuncular hand on Micks shoulder. O'Leary bends down to the titch with a slight smirk on his face...every inch of him looking the gombeen man and cute hoor he truly is...'Thanks Mick for making my net wealth quadruple in the last few years...you're a good lad'(says Tony). 'Don't mention it boss' says the smirking Mick, 'just wait 'til I deal wit dose bleedin shoites of poilots and we'll double our money again...har har harrrrrr!'

God they turn my stomach.

Guv, the booking tool is OpenSkies, but the website design is a separate issue - it has to interface with OpenSkies, so there will be a number of constraints as to how it can look, but I don't believe OpenSkies even do web design - and if they do, they certainly don't do it for all of the airlines you mentioned.

Just wanted to clarify that - now back to your regularly scheduled discussions

Quite right Lawyaire, maybe I didn't make myself clear: the site was designed by, but not run by said students for said price.
Have we found a chink in the Guvs armour?

EINino - OK, apologies tendered. I thought you were talking about the whole system.
