Well that does not fundamentally change the rail vs. air calculation and don't forget check in times for flights. Do you honestly expect an air service to Heathrow will be cheaper than the train most of the time? Air from Exeter to Heathrow will just not work. Sadly, the train really does beat the plane in this instance.
