Maybe you are right or maybe you are wrong who knows . However I still find it unacceptable on a number of levels . Firstly the fact that a one way ticket was costing £300 ( before bags ) in the first place . Secondly that refunds have been offered for EasyJet card holders only . Thirdly that it’s still over £200 one way ( before bags ). And point four is it’s for a randomly timed once a day service to Gatwick airport . Point five compare and contrast their commercial behaviour on Manchester and Liverpool where there is competition.  I would hazard a guess that right now the London to Isle of Man is the most profitable route in the EasyJet network .  In any other sector or industry the customer would vote with their feet but so many people are trapped in a world where they believe EasyJet are wonderful they fail to see what is going on around them ! 
Let’s hope the other posters are right and it gets sorted quickly . 

A return ticket over Christmas to Gatwick is £67. If they can't fill one plane a day, why would they put two on?

I refer you to a post on page 51 where the passenger numbers for October are quoted . You will see that the route with the most passengers is Gatwick and beats Liverpool with 4 or 5 flights a day . This indicates the supply on London is below demand indeed other posters are suggesting trains from London to Manchester or Liverpool to pick up flights and in my opinion this is just not sustainable. 
 

I don’t necessarily advocate more EasyJets but a higher frequency service and an early morning and evening service to ensure the island is connected for business .

I don't know if anyone else had the abysmal experience at the nation's aerodrome last night.  The LGW flight landed at around 1915; it was a few minutes short 2030 before those that had hold baggage emerged - and it had nothing to do with the CV checkpoint..  No apologies, no reason given - just the usual shite service expected from the Spake circus.

WTF is going on down at the Island's contender for white-elephant of the century competition?

Spake is clueless, whatever made us think he could run an airport is beyond me !

Just embarrassing,  in such a small airport there really is no excuse what-so-ever for the hold baggage not to arrive within 15mins of the plane arriving on stand. It's not like they have miles to travel.

It's one of the two main ports of entry, how difficult can it possibly be to make arrivals a smooth, pleasant and welcoming experience? 

First impressions are so important....

Nothing to do with Spake though.  Baggage handling has been privatised and is in the hands of Menzies Aviation (they were advertising for handlers back in April).  You have to thank the wonders of capitalism for your delay.

Who ordered these, and how much did they cost? .... And how much did they cost to ship here from the USA?

Someone is surely having a larf at our expense.

Oops, just noticed that they've got their own thread Shows how impo tent they are.

Apparently they are highly computerised, what could possibly go wrong

The airport infrastructure i.e. the non 'sexy' stuff is falling apart, due to lack of maintenance, oversight etc etc.

Security gates don't work, control tower still leaks despite being fixed and of course runway 03/21 is still closed.

Spake is from the spend and develop school of management, not run anything and needs emptying.

Ho Ho fuxxxing HO !
