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?

It’s a massive subsidy at absolutely no risk to Logan air

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.

So leave the Isle of Man with no air connections then ? Or see what EasyJet come up with I know what will happen there !

Spot on ref PTS.

The Heathrow contract has no real ending. It’s just until such time the borders allow commercial operations to resume...

I see the underwriting is only until end March, as I said.

Clearly there’ll be a review nearer the time. Can’t imagine it’ll continue if EZY return.

That’s not what anyone is saying, I was pointing out that Loganair are not doing routes as they like Isle of Man it’s because they are getting loadsamoney!!

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.

You can book a through ticket on Emirates via LHR. Via Manchester, too.

So which airline does ‘like’ the Isle of Man ?

Mr Quine soon became a Gov mouthpiece didn't he?

Personally I don't see a situation where we have to underwrite routes as a confident statement in the Island, but oh well.

Yes, I too was concerned at the speed of assimilation into the Borg.

It's Captain Quine to you, I'll have you know.  Though to be fair, about the only policy he seemed to be promoting during the by-election was "Spend more money on airlines".  So he's consistent.

Arriving at some sort of agreement with a trusted operator was the sensible solution I would like to hear any form of alternative credible plan . Anyone who needs to go across for hospital treatment will I am sure be grateful ! And bear in mind Aurigny have posted losses of nearly £10m to ensure they as an island have connectivity . I doubt the underwriting costs will be anything like that .

We don’t know what the PT contract is. LHR has no relevance to patients. 

Aurigny are expected to lose £24million this year. Just had a cash flow loan of £57m.

By end next year cumulative losses will be around £80m
