I'm not saying gamblers shouldn't take a benefit from their success.

But that doesn't excuse them being fundamentally unpleasant to their employees who are making their money (or not as the case may be).

Manners, politeness and respect cost nothing, but I never saw anything like that from RL or BH.

I did see one staff member reduced to tears as a result of a very loud and aggressive dressing down from BH for wearing boots in their uniform in HUY HQ reception in front of about 10 people... just as they were about to walk out the door into the car park which had nearly a foot of snow in it.

I know that attitude and contempt for staff was not an exception but a norm.

Absolutely. Few would/should argue that those that take the risks should benefit the most. You deserve to have reaped the benefits. However, there has got to be a degree of equality and fairness among all stakeholders with that success.
Also, arguably the "winnings" could have been even greater perhaps had different tactics been employed...

With all the talk about the problems eastern are in,nothing has been mentioned about the airbus corporate routes they operate. Would they be stopped as well,if they pulled the airbus contract it would be a good one for BMIR to take on again as they lost the contract to eastern.

Six years ago I invested in commercial real estate, my decision wasn't comparible to playing poker because I did sound research and made a commercial decision based on that research.

These six years later, regardless that my business has a healthy annual turnover, my real estate is valued at around 7 times my initial outlay with the land itself being worth around 15 times what I paid for it with real estate prices here still rocketing.

Only a fool would invest in an airline with a fleet of glorified Airfix kits.

Good summing up of the problems. If the travelling public with a need to get from A to B is at the mercy of a bunch of gamblers from god knows where only interested in their self aggrandisement, then they will be disappointed.

The Dublin service was a rumour remember, until there is some form of press release about any new route or routes.....let's leave it there and move on.

Eastern are dying a death by a thousand cuts. I think they are circa 900 by now. They’ve lost millions and Bristows must be spitting fire at RL.

I see that T3 have been using G-CERY instead of G-CDKA to operate the IOM service for nearly a week now.

Was wondering if any knows what the problem is with G-CDKA?.
