Guernsey and Jersey ferry to UK is not really comparable in terms of frequency of service or price or drop off to a big city (liverpool) or tourist offering plus their Governments are in big time on air travel compared to IoM so no surprise on them figures in terms of % of routes i.e traffic rather than passengers if thats what the graph is.

And at quite the cost to the Guernsey taxpayer too.

OpenSkies by itself doesn't suit all our needs, but the Aurigny model really doesn't.

I think if Aurigny became part of e.g. Eastern but the operation losses funded by Guernsey, it'd be a very different story. Just commercially, as we know from our own experiences, Gov run anything is never done commercially sensible.

Wonder if Jez travelled up from Heathrow to Liverpool for a freebie on Loganair?

Do you know the background of Eastern? They have been loss making for years and are propped up by the money of a millionaire (Richard Lake).

Combining them would be like merging the MEA and the Water Authority!

If this is scheduled downtime someone needs to be asked why at this time of year !

With 40% probability, temporarily from Tuesday 9:00 till 12:00: Visibility 3000m. Rain drizzle. Clouds broken 400ft.

Hardly many other options with a once a day flight to London ! Goes to show a lot of the Liverpool traffic is people heading on to London and demonstrates the demand is there . What a ridiculous state of affairs !

One wonders what environmental projects this £2M "environmental tax" take has been getting expended on since its introduction and where would its rescinding actually impact upon?

I'm going to wager "none" and "salaries and pensions".

See Boy David spouting

If I was a betting man I would say that would be absorbed into the airline's operating costs, rather than passed on to the consumer

Yes David but we'll never know now will we. Even if it was 10% chance of getting it passed on to the consumer that is better than your offer of 0% chance.
