its former glory days

Its former glory days had airlines based here running to set timetables when we knew that the flights to X, Y and Z would be operating as per that timetable come hell and high water.

With Manx/BRAL, BA, Euromanx, flybe and even manx2, you could almost put money on the flight running unless the weather was really bad or there was a technical problem.

With easyjet (especially) and Loganair, certainty of getting on one of their flights is a pipe-dream.

Isn't Mr Callister a member of DfE ,the department that coordinate the air services with the operators.

Indeed. It's not really DOI, they just handle the logistics and pricing. DFE very much leading the way in discussions and underwriting with airlines.

I said in another thread, how long can the starship effectively run without a Minister to be held accountable?

That paragraph absolutely does not apply to manx2. Part of their problem (to put it mildly) was that they would would go out in any weather.
