      Can you also link with Jet Blue on the US side?

      “…will benefit Munster by making the region more accessible to the USA inbound tourist and USA corporate travel markets” – what a load of bull! “Munster” has always had access to USA inbound tourist and USA corporate travel markets through Shannon airport – the real point is that CORK does not have direct transatlantic flights to the US. Why would anyone want to fly Cork-Dublin-US when flying Cork-Shannon-US is a far shorter route?

      Hi,
      Seems pretty useless when you cannot even book a flight from Cork. Tried 04th September for 7 days to NYC, No Luck.
      Bit pointless if the Aer arann flights from Cork do not match up with the Aer lingus flight schedules. Booked Cork – NYC with BA. No problem, more convienient,than traevlling to Dublin or Shannon. cheaper, seat back entertainment on the flights, drinks and food free, amd more baggage allowance.
