The train from Exeter to Paddington with a connection to Heathrow Express runs about twice an hour and takes just over three hours. For an air service to be effective competition it would need to run at least every two hours throughout the day. I suspect no carrier would be willing to take that risk, especially given Heathrow's charges.
