Definitely a double-edged sword. There's surely just as much of an argument that by setting up in direct competition with them, they'd be more likely to walk away than if they were the only one?

Based on the amounf of moaning about easyJet on here, what would be the issue? Seems to be a case of the "having the cake and.."-dilemna.

Indeed. Personally I have no beef with Easy and their flights, they're cost effective and convenient when needed. Especially when long hauling or overseas travelling.

If I need to get to London, I'd traditionally take BA to City. The problem with that has always been the early departure time for the last flight of the day. This may be part of the rationale behind a potential LCY originating flight with BA, if that does happen. I know many people that book City-IOM and then end up flying back to Gatwick in the evening as the City departure is just too early.

Didn't the evening LCY -》IOM leg used to depart at 20:00 or am I thinking of the good old days when I was a regular?

If only. It departs 5:30/6pm usually as I recall.

Very unlikely that either EZY or EIR will be back at EGNS before October/November.

Would not be a surprise and another example of EasyJet being of little help to the island .

No need to worry though as they have a great app as reported in an earlier post !

I had an email yesterday cancelling an IOM-DUB flight due in September. It looks like Aer Lingus have now cancelled flights to IOM until at least 25/10. Nothing on sale for travel until then.

This is the best online link I can find. Printed edition of the paper specifically states Gatwick

This has the potential to deliver a great degree of certainty for the Isle of Man's air routes going forward, but I'm not sure I understand the logic in serving Gatwick specifically. I'm sure they could W it with the GCI flights. I would have imagined that other new opportunities may exist, rather than chasing existing ones?

Aurigny can't even make Guernsey routes profitable. The fact Isle of Man already have easyJet (BFS/BRS/LPL/LGW/LTN) and Loganair (EDI/LCY/LPL/MAN) means Aurigny will struggle on nearly all routes as there is a presence of competition. If they can't make their GCI operations profitable when they are the sole provider on most routes, I don't hold out much hope of the IOM network - but lets hope they can make it work

Isn't part of Aurigny's problem that they always choose to try and compete on existing r outes rather than going for new ones...?
