Eurowings, fella, if you need to ask that then you must be a daffodil bulb propagator and know sweet FA about aviation. Just read about manxy2 on these forums and make google a mate as well. You'll get your answers, fella, yessir

Of course I know about the Manx2 incidents involving operators other than Van Air but I was wondering about Van Air as they seem (from an outsiders point of view) to have operated the LETs out of BLK relatively trouble-free over the past 4 or 5 years.

A search doesn't really dig any dirt on this operator (or FLM Aviation who operate the Dorniers)....

If Manx2 are supposedly just a ticketing agency, the actual operators are all you have to go on...

Eurowings fella - really must try a bit harder. Im computer illiterate but 10 secs on google turned this one up Manx2 flight suffers burst tyre - Isle of Man News - iomtoday

and there was the one that blew over and the baggage door. The experts on here will set you right, yessir.

Tinwald - do you really feel the need to be so snotty to a genuine request for information? You obviously "know it all", but not everyone on here is so fortunate, so needs to ask from time to time.

No mate i don't know it all but eurowings could find out all th einfo he needs himself by just expending a little time and effort at the keyboard. So yes, in answer to your question.

I'd agree with you - I am not aware of any significant incidents associated with either of these operators. A burst tyre doesn't really qualify as a major incident (especially as the press report doesn't even use the word "terrified" at any stage and the journalist can't bring themselves to use any stronger word than "eventful"). One can justifiably question the degree of oversight which was applied by the "ticketing agency" in the past (and the Irish accident report is likely to do just this) but I am not aware of any major issues related to either of the actual operators. I am happy to be corrected.

Hope this helps.

Not just on this thread but there are many questions that could have been answered with a little 'Google' time.

Anyone who has lived on the Isle of Man will understand that any small incident will be turned into a major disaster by the radio/press. That's the way the Island is.

This was along the lines I was thinking about Van Air and FLM, but some posters seemed quite critical about the LETs so I did wonder if there was more to them than meets the eye.

I didn't mean to annoy anyone, I did undertake Google search, but like Cyrano I am always a bit suspicious of reports in papers (as they often seem sensationalist at the very least!).

To an extent I agree with ericlday, but as aviation professionals I'm sure there are aspects of certain operators' performance, for example, on which many of us have informed views that you will not find by Googling.
I feel that it would be a pity in general if anyone was discouraged from asking a reasonable question for fear of getting flamed for doing so.

Apologies for going somewhat off topic.

I support Expressflight's points also. And why should Tinwald attack daffodil bulb propagators? I hope one is working on bulbs that will deter those pesky birds that are destroying mine at the moment........

So the easys will do to the boys in light blue what they did to the euromanxies on the Liverpool route. What goes around comes around or is ti the other way around or something. Anyway it would be just puddings.

What's this about Menzies being over to the Rock and the IOM GOV trying to off load the baggage handling department? Or is this just usual rumours at Reynoldsway

There were Menzies people at the airport today. Seemed to be looking over the flight support equipment.

No idea about the baggage handlers, but that's the usual rumour, however pressure is on them.

Manx Radio released salary details for them last week... :: Manx Radio :: The Isle of Man's Premier Radio Station ::

34.5k a year. Crazy

Not rumours about Menzies looking around Ronaldsway. Not sure about baggage, but they have around AFS.

They have just taken on Flybe handling in LGW and BHX. I think in the big picture, they want MAN too, but if they take over Flight Support, they gain 4 bases in total.
