Question is if these Cobalt (for GCI) and Jet Airways (IOM) slots will be available in winter as well? Or do new routes get preferential treatment when it comes to allocating unused slots? If not, quite surprising that BE has been able to snap up the slots for both routes, given that there will be long queue of airlines waiting for slots.

Btw, I am wondering if any serivces from IOM or GCI are sacrificed for the new LHR routes? Or is there so much slack in the schedules of the IOM/GCI based aicraft that BE was able to throw in an additional rotation to LHR?
