Any news on Smartwing? (new trans Atlantic budget airline)

Have put off buying tickets (WAS to PRG) because I heard that this new "jetblue type" airline is opening "in the spring".

All I know is:
Based in DC (flying out of BWI first year, then switching to IAD)
Major hubs are Stansted, BWI (initially)
Serving 14 cities (including PRG)
RT coach fares expected to be about $300, RT business class about $750.

This sounds great of course, but is it really going to happen? At those prices? When?

Anyone have any news on this airline to share??

No U.S. departure points in the drop-down list. Looks like it only travels between Prague and another city, or you could maybe travel -through- Prague...

Travelnut, I think bardo is talking about a new company, Smartwing (no s). I'd love to hear more about it.

I found an article about Skylink when I googled BWI.
