Whether they use them or not is another story....

No doubt they saw the demand created this summer with the Flybe flight to Heathrow which is extremely unlikely to operate next year. THE BACF flight operates a good reliable regular service from the island to London and should be encouraged.

I'm pretty convinced that this route will be well received.

With Connect Airways focus on feeding VS at LHR & MAN I do wonder how long this route will last. Flybe have practically removed all SEN flying and Stobart only have a handful.

If BACF use all there allocated slots for LCY route, 23pw, then this will be a non starter. I really cannot see demand for this route.

Providing feed at LHR can at best be a longterm goal for a time when a third runway provides additional slots at LHR. In the absence of that, VS would need to sacrifice longhaul slots to accommodate feeder flights or splash out tons of money to buy slots - should someone entertain the idea of selling their precious slots. Both options are, to put it mildly, fanciful.

To be fair, Stobart / flybe have just today announced routes from SEN to Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast City and IoM - 2 or 3 daily each route - so that handful's just got quite a lot bigger again!

In the absence of the third runway at Heathrow these services could be operated to West London by cross rail (when Functioal) via Southend and Shenfield.

These flights are not for passengers connecting at LHR. It's purely for point to point traffic. Who in their right mind is going to book GLA-SEN-Train across Essex & London-LHR-Destination when you can book with KLM or Emirates or others with one straight forward stop.
BA318 is online now

This. If ever I have long haul trips to make, I'll always fly to LCY and connect to Heathrow or go via MAN. Always.

Both STN and SEN have very good European holiday and biz destinations. Otherwise, as JSCL says, they don't work. Sadly, this also applies to most UK domestic airports and has been known for 30+ years. Don't expect anythng to change and don't expect a third at LHR to magically open the options.

DLR to Canning Town, Jubilee Line to Green Park and Piccadilly Line to LHR is the direct public transport option.
Option 2 is continue on Jubilee Line to Baker St, change for Bakerloo Line to Paddington for the Heathrow Express

If traveling both IOM -LCY & LHR - XXX with BA don't they sort that for you?

Pre 9/11 they used to transfer connecting bags between LHR & LGW......but that service fell by the wayside as soon as security was enhanced.
