Seems quite a short lead time for bookings, but perhaps they've been working on inplementing it for some time?
Well, if Jet Airways needed to offload a slot at short notice because of their financial problems (whether leased or sold), I could see this as being the cheapest form of "slot sitting" possible at short notice. But (because of the late notice) it smells much more to me like a short-term babysitting exercise than a long-term LHR-IOM route (sorry!).
