As predicted, when his holiness the Chief Cockwomble was interviewed on BBC Breakfast this morning, his only reference was about TT visitors being able to get here. No mention of the effect on residen

Writing the adverts now, ‘Steam Packet Airlines, if there ain’t a boat in the morning, there probably won’t be a plane either’.

I think when most people hear of a contingency plan being in place the expectation is for that contingency plan to kick in immediately upon the happening of the event the contingency was planned for.

Its great news that Loganair will  be flying into Heathrow and it appears it will be the jet lets hope this can continue and become a permanent route an evening rotation would also be great when the border eventually opens. I think the Manx Government and Loganair should be congratulated for making this happen.

Nothing London and just tried to look at on BA.com if it'd let me book anything from IOM. Alas not.

Im not too convinced BA will want to work with Loganair on this route to be honest given other things that may be going on.

There are LHR-IOM seats for sale now on the Loganair website.  Why would they be available on ba.com?

They’re making it happen with our taxes so I’m congratulating us.

London City used to operate at 80% capacity and that was when it was operating three times a day . If London Heathrow has two rotations a day it should be able to keep going especially given Heathrow has far better connectivity . Let’s hope so as it’s excellent news for the island .

Because the article quoted states BA as a partner at certain airports where you can book through flights involving a BA flights and a Loganair flight on BA.com

But Logan air app specifically doesn’t list LHR for that facility ( perhaps because they didn’t fly there until now?)

Yes I know, I was simply looking to see if they'd put something in BA for LHR (because it would make sense).

Well that maybe the case but at least Loganair have made the effort to try and serve the island. I fully recognise that there has been some government incentive but in these unprecedented times I think that is necessary to serve the island and keep it connected. Its been remarkable the number of 'low cost' Easy Jet fights I have seen on the island since March which shows how committed they are to the Isle of Man! And I say 'low cost' as they were the airline who remember back in March were charging over £600 return fares to Liverpool!

They haven’t made any effort , the tax payer is underwriting the full costs of all flights as Baker stated yesterday.

So Logan Air are keeping plane & crew operating at our expense!!

Underwriting is the principle of ensuring the airline meet the minimum costs of operating if you listened Baker said they were sharing the benefits so Loganair are doing something! And how many Easy jets have you seen?

easyjet is too big.

Eastern, Stobart and Aurigny all offered to serve London too, but the Loganair fanclub down at the airport shoed them in.
