  1. Yes we did but as everyone goes for the cheapest fare …… you end up with easyJet.
  2. Don’t think so EZ. Cancelled about 1600
  3. Yes let’s not spoil it, 2 nights extra hotel and missing work, dogs in kennels another couple of days, extra car parking.
  4. Gatwick cancelled tonight. Met some very peed off MGP tourists who say they won’t be back!
  5. Urgent travel back to the Island this weekend family illness return fare with car best price £620
  6. So how will this reduce the wholesale cost of imported gas, gas that is used to produce electricity?
  7. Must have been a few years ago that on arrival from IOM on Aer Arran you were routed to the local arrivals and missed out the passport control
  8. So why when you arrive in Dublin you have to Queue at passport control and go through customer mail.
  9. Overnight stop would need 2 sets of crew as the evening arrival time means that the inbound crew could not operate the morning departure. Cost prohibitive.
  10. Manx Care vacancies running a 20%, if you don’t have the staff the system will not work. Young Nurses and Doctors cannot afford to come here due to high rents. They need to provide reasonably priced accommodation.
  11. Here are the rules and the limits. ICAO and FAA CAT III definitions A CAT III operation is a precision approach at lower than CAT II minima. Sub-categories are listed below. A category III A approach is a precision instrument approach and landing with no decision height or a decision height lower than 100ft (30m) and a runway visual range not less than 700ft (200m). A category III B approach is a precision approach and landing with no decision height or a decision height lower than 50ft (15m) and a runway visual range less than 700ft (200m), but not less than 150ft (50m). A category III C approach is a precision approach and landing with no decision height and no runway visual range limitation.
  12. Radar does not do anything for approach and landing in low or zero visibility. It requires a completely separate system, at the airport. The aircraft, the operator and the Flight crew need to be approved. The flight crew also need to be current. The system being CATT III, CAT IIIA. I am sure. Our flight crew members can expand further if this is economically viable for IOM.
  13. Hi anybody use IT WORKS IOM. For e-mail. Mine stopped working this morning.
  14. Like every other local business …. Use it or lose it. Butchers, Bakers, Fishmongers, paper shops and of course the Post offices.
  15. Is that the U.K. Campaign Against Aviation or the local branch?
