Re: [tdf-discuss] LibOCon proposals


Hi all,
regarding the issue of the Ryanair flights to Zaragoza, finally an agreement between Ryanair and 
the local authorities has been reached. More or less as expected, almost all EU flights continue, 
in some cases with increased frequencies:  LondonStansted, Milan Orio al Serio, Brussels Charleroi, 
Paris Beauvais, Seville and Lanzarote. In exchange, flights to Bologna, Rome, Tenerife, Gran 
Canaria, and Malaga will be stopped. You can read the news in today's local newspaper (in Spanish):
http://www.elperiodicodearagon.com/noticias/aragon/la-dga-logra-salvar-seis-rutas-de-ryanair-que-eliminara-otras-cinco_734242.html

Moreover, as stated in our proposal, we are fully open to debate the date that  best fits the 
Foundation for the LibOCon conference, all September til October 5th, and also November.
p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }a:link {  }Finally, a personal comment, if anyone does not have time to 
read the whole proposals, and after reading many of the mails in the discuss forum:

Our aim by proposing a bid to organize this conference is motivated by the fact that LibreOffice is 
now, in our opinion, in a crucial, and turning point of expansion. Therefore, and as we think that 
LO has a brilliant future and potential, we think that we can also contribute to its development 
with our humble means, by organizing a successful event. 

Thanks very much, best regards
Juan Pradas

Hi Christian,
thanks for your remarks and questionsabout the flight connections. 

********************************************************************************** 

1. Regarding the flight connections,Zaragoza airport is currently under negotiations with Ryanair 
toreadapt its schedule for the Summer period (March 30thonwards) and for the rest of their 
agreement (I guess it lasts until2014 or 2015). Last October, Ryanair stopped flying to Alicante 
andMalaga (altough to Malaga it should restart on April), and  this is atypical example of the 
trading between Ryanair and many airports(Ryanair asks for XX+1 and the airport says XX-1). That is 
why, lastJanuary, Ryanair stopped selling tckets for the summer season untilnegotiations come to an 
end, in order to put extra pressure on theactivities. Probably they will discontinue some Spanish 
flights tothe Canary Islands such as Tenerife, Las Palmas, and maybe Seville orBologna. What is 
sure is that flights to the main EU capitals will bepursued, since they are strategical for the 
authorities: LondonStansted, Milan Orio al Serio, Brussels Charleroi, Paris Beauvais(yes, not CDG), 
Rome Ciampino, etc.  However, we should be able to know theexact agreement in a few days, as it has 
been stated in the localpress (first part of February), and then flights should be on saleagain 
(they were on sale from November till Christmas before Ryanairblocked the sales).
