Buying intentions by wiseeders amount (today November 29, 2014) to more than 17 million euros. Wow !

On the scientific side, one might wonder, as investor or passenger, if the airport's runways are wider or longer. Consider this true Irish story below:

(To our French and Toulouse natives readers: "fookin" can be translated into "putaing de")

Aer Lingus Flight EI 530 was flying from Dublin to Toulouse one night, with Paddy the pilot, and Shamus the co-pilot. As they approached Toulouse airport, they looked out the front window.
"B'jeesus," said Paddy "Will ye look at how fookin short dat runway is."
"You're not fookin kiddin, Paddy" replied Shamus.
"Dis is gonna be one a' de trickiest landings you're ever gonna see," said Paddy.
"You're not fookin kiddin, Paddy." replied Shamus.
"Right Shamus. When I give de signal, you put de engines in reverse" said Paddy.
"Right, I'll be doing dat" replied Shamus.
"And den ye put de flaps down straight away" said Paddy.
"Right, I'll be doing dat" replied Shamus.
"And den ye stamp on dem brakes as hard as ye can" said Paddy.
"Right, I'll be doing dat" replied Shamus.
"And den ye pray to de Mother Mary with all a' your soul" said Paddy.
"I be doing dat already" replied Shamus. 
So they approached the runway with Paddy and Shamus full of nerves and sweaty palms. As soon as the wheels hit the ground, Shamus put the engines in reverse, put the flaps down, stamped on the brakes and prayed to Mother Mary with all of his soul.  Amidst roaring engines, squealing of tyres and lots of smoke, the plane screeched to a halt centimetres from the end of the runway, much to the relief of Paddy and Shamus and everyone on board. As they sat in the cockpit regaining their composure, Paddy looked out the front window and said to Shamus "Dat has gotta be de shortest fookin runway I have EVER seen in me whole life".
Shamus looked out the side window and replied "Yeah Paddy, but look how fookin wide it is ».
