I wonder if Mr Callister has seen any memos, e mails , reports outlining what those concerns were ? Or has he taken the word of the profligate bullshitters in charge ?

It would be good to see some evidence  of the CAA's concerns , or improvement notices , perhaps someone on one of the many Tynwald scrutiny committees will look at this ,and the claim made that  the expenditure will allow for larger aircraft ,

You have to be joking??

 

i travel pretty much every week and have not been through that before?

It was certainly like that in the middle of August, I was ushered in there for a moderate wait while they vetted my vaccination credentials, along with quite a lot of other people on the same flight.

BA are pulling the plug on Gatwick short haul - apart from Manchester.

 

Will be interesting to see what they do, if anything, about the Channel Islands services 

I continued my complaints about the London service to my local MHK and he (David Ashford) did at least give me a prompt & encouraging response....'.I fully agree both London and Ireland lack of connectivity is becoming a major urgent issue with potential serious repercussions. The first job of any new DOI Minister must be as a matter of urgency to look at what can be done to restore that connectivity as quickly as possible.'

Won't the wonderful Open Skies policy just magically deliver us a new London and Ireland service?

The open skies policy has delivered nothing but a merry go round of operators some of dubious antecedents over the past 25 years ! Some have left leaving a trail of debt and others causing staff to leave the island altogether. Yes I am convinced that open skies is an unqualified success.

The new ATR72 that was flown in by Loganair on Sunday has had a great start.

Around an hour of delays on Monday afternoon.

Tech issue yesterday afternoon resulting in hours of delays as a replacement had to be flown in.

Already half an hour behind schedule today.

The situation regarding London flights is abysmal its good to hear Minister Ashford outline its a priority its beyond comprehension that there is only one flight a day at varying times throughout the week. To ensure the right connectivity for finance and business the island needs a morning and evening flight into a premium airport most likely London City. Previously the route was served by BA operating under a wet lease with Loganair with a three times daily service on the Saab more latterly the ATR. I would suggest a twice a day service ( early morning and early evening) is sufficient maybe the plane could be used in the middle of the day to serve Belfast, Dublin, Birmingham, Manchester or Liverpool. With a little bit of ingenuity this could all be resolved to the benefit of everyone.

Go steady thats almost an idea ! However we have highly salaried aviation professionals running the airport, whose nose for strategy knows no bounds !
