You know somethin ?? I love the staff at Aer Lingus.
100 mostly female but a fair scattering of males, and every one of them smiling, friendly and helpful at this ungodly hour - it wouldn't be me, I'd scowl my way through the first 2 hours at least....

At the moment Chris Froome is in second spot...
He is a team player and supported Wiggins in the tour de France - I'm sure he could have won it in his own right
Heres what they have to say in the 'blurbs'
"There are three former winners of Grand Tours here [Alejandro Valverde, Denis Menchov and defending Vuelta champion Juan Jose Cobo] and they will be serious rivals. But Froome is the one that sticks out the most," Contador said. "Froome could be the most dangerous because he's also a good time triallist and has a very strong team. He could have won the Vuelta last year and he was the strongest rider in the Tour de France, although it's impossible to say if he'd have won because [winner and team-mate Bradley] Wiggins was strong in time trials."
Froome's second place in the Vuelta last year was a breakthrough result for the Kenyan-born Briton. Since then he has also ridden the Tour de France with Sky, finishing second behind Wiggins, which confirmed that the 2011 Vuelta ride was no fluke.
At this year's Vuelta, while Sky's morale is sky high after the Tour and their series of earlier triumphs this season, taking on Contador, on home soil to boot, is a challenge as big as they get in cycling.
"I'm not afraid of him, and he's got no reason to be afraid of me," Froome said. "We've both got a job to do. My aim is to continue the team's successful season to date and maintain the momentum we've had so far."
