You're having a laugh! Because bad organisation always starts at the top. IOMG is the epitome of the expression "over managed and under led" and that's how they like it....

Blowing in the wind by now, Gladys. Along with any other truths about what goes on over here half the time, due to a total culture of unaccountability and responsibility within certainly, the upp

Contacts within the airport tell me that the director has issued an email to all airport staff basically exonerating the management team of any responsibility and slapping the blame firmly on Aurigny.

So 2 hours incarcerated in a plane on the tarmac at Manchester is a brief delay?

Exactly, the delay was longer than the flight.  What sins are covered by a "breakdown in communication "? There should have been a huge mea culpa from an individual.  In instances like this, it is so much better to come clean quickly and without veils.

Why is that information so hard to find?

Speculation only. No basis in fact.

They're reluctant to be publicly available because they’d be inundated.

I know that when I had reason to complain last year that there was a definite filtration going on, so that it was claimed that correspondence to the generic airport e-mail address with a clear and explicit request to forward to Mr Spake wasn’t forwarded. Their PR and customer service isn’t the best.

Why? Why do people always want someone to point the finger at blame?

Fuckups happen sometimes. It's not the end of the world.

Fuck ups happen, we all appreciate that, but when they happen the best response is to be upfront.  This happened over 24 hours ago, a speedy response to say we fucked up and are sorry, but are working with Aurigny to do the best we can.  That would be so much better than nothing, absolutely nothing, at all for almost 36 hours.  

One can only assume there have been many headless chickens running round trying to shift the blame down the line.

If the response had been immediate and contrite, the reputational damage would have been limited.

He went to DOI, which he said would help his role in tourism.

Well he is right, it helped make a right mess of both.

It will certainly give him an insight into what tourists will encounter on the Promenade in the next couple of years.

Surely a typical, face saving, Govt response? Don't blame Aurigny for not checking the opening time, nor us for not having RWY open before the posted time???

In the current 'Go guernsey' camaraderie our govt would not say 'stupid buggers' for not checking the opening times , even if that is what they feel!!!

It matters not what the management structure is, they are not going to blame theirselves for any failing, public or private industry, until it absolutely necessary!!! They fear it may well come back to bite them in their turn!

Hard as it may be, a little though into our Govts thinking will make it all as clear as mud!
