Isn’t a bit pot calling the kettle black to complain that those happy with additional Easyjet rotations are focussed on their own agenda when you want less easyjet and more other services exactly for your own agenda.

At the moment I’d say be grateful for extra easyjet services because with the rest of the world opening back up it’s even less likely most others are going to look at the IOM.

IOMX seems to have an issue with easyJet rather than the other operators who have withdrawn.

And connectivity to other geographies is strategically important especially a capital city
If it is strategically important it should be taxpayer funded if it isn't commercially funded.

But that is where you are entirely wrong I don't have an issue with Easyjet per se I have consistently said ( read my comments back if you need to) that they have a role to play. What I don't think is right is to keep flooding the market with 156 seats to squeeze others out then putting up prices. I think there are two groups of travellers

1)Those that are less worried about when they travel and are focused on price- Easyjet
2) Those that need greater frequency at convenient times and are prepared to pay more ( AN other ideally 50 or 76 seat operator)

Balancing 1+2 equals all travellers needs are catered for. If you only go for Easyjet the likely outcome is two flights a day at mixed times and that will certainly not meet the needs of category (2) travellers.

And I also agree it needs intervention from IOMG, and support to promote the island etc so its not all at the airlines doors so I really don't understand why I am so widely short of the mark which you all seem to think I am.

If they only have one flight per day isn't that what you want
You say they're flooding the market. Doesn't look that way

Ah apologies I was working off your earlier post were you were celebrating additional Easyjet flights going in. To be honest I know you are the defacto Easyjet Head of Marketing so I always assume you are fully informed and have an in depth knowledge. Must be about time for you to do your marketing pitch again?

IOMX

Its not the first time you've posted this in relation to me personally. I lose all respect for any point of debate you make when you write a post which is so utterly ridiculous. You've lost your audience - well me for starters

Have to agree. People can be happy with the Easyjet offering without needing to be called names for it. At the end of the day Easyjet is the only one willing to fly London-IOM at the moment so any increase should be welcome.

I have tried all along to share my opinions and thoughts I appreciate others have different views and I respect that . But take a lot at this quote from earlier on in the year. I have outlined my position as clearly as I can I think it’s fairly balanced and respects the fact that some people value EasyJet and I have on a number of occasions accepted points well made . It’s a rare thing for anyone to actually do anything similar to any of mine but maybe I am so far off beam that’s why nobody says good point well made .

Yea they put them back and back, then U2 extended BFS into winter and they went off sale at the same point, not sure if that's the reason or if they'd already decided not to launch but they'd already chopped about a lot prior to that.

I wonder what the aircraft does between arriving at Ronaldsway at 16.10 and departing for Dublin the next day at 10.40?

Some online travel agents are showing the IOM - DUB as two flights on some dates. For example, I checked Friday 16 September and theres a couple of agents showing flight 3213 at 1050. I haven't bothered to work out what date the extra flights start

Another thing I noticed is that there's zero Avios availability for reward flights on checking Avios.com

The dates in that screenshot are over 2 weeks apart...
The aircraft doesn't sit around at IOM from 1610 until 1040 the next day.

The summer schedule kicks in on 27th Mar so EI3212/3213 moves to an afternoon departure from both DUB and IOM each day.

Quick look at the EI website shows:

16th Mar -
EI3212 DUB-IOM 0920/1010
EI3213 IOM-DUB 1040/1130

31st Mar -
EI3212 DUB-IOM 1520/1610
EI3213 IOM-DUB 1635/1725

Many thanks for the explanation. Couldn't believe Emerald would let their metal stand idle for all that time.

Incidentally I'm afraid the one and only EI flight I have ever taken was several years ago on an F27....

Apologies was doing a dummy booking, and picked random dates for times.
