Liverpool flight now getting in at c10pm , lots of people who’ve been to various hospitals will be very tired with some distressed after being up since c5am

Absolutely appalling a lot of those people travelling on the Liverpool flight will be patient transfers and therefore not very well of some sort . The last thing they need is an enforced delay and subsequent wait to get back to the island . It’s just not good enough . The Loganair team need to both put it right urgently and publically apologise.

I've been on maybe just under a dozen Heathrow flights now and the loads have been improving, that's for sure.

I've only flown City a handful of times and not for a while, so not sure on that one.

July 22 stats show 2651 passengers on Heathrow. Assuming 1 flight per day, that's 42-43 passenger average in each direction, which definitely isn't break even, but must be close.

City is 6 per week I think, showing at 2251 passengers which is 36 in each direction.

I think that when the underwriting was announced, Allinson said that if 50 people were on each flight there’d be no subsidy. So, based on your numbers of around 40 per flight, presumably roughly 20% of the funds will be drawn down which would be c£800k. Some fairly big assumptions in that calculation though!

Hopefully if new FlyBe pick up LHR that’ll take Loganair out of that part of the picture.

If they do, I imagine a similar public uproar by Loganair as they did on the south coast.
