Force 10 winds at IOM a few weeks ago caused our 8.40 flight from Manchester to be delayed a little. The usual ATR72 was replaced by a Dash 8 - no announcement but I guess that this caused the delay....

Thankfully I'm not flying this evening but Flybe's schedule looks a total mess with I think all flights delayed significantly. MAN to Belfast appears to be 4 hours late. So it's not just me! Anyone...

I travelled with Links Air today, Doncaster-IOM. Nothing to complain about, all went well.
The third passenger on this route (ever!) was wheelchair-bound and seemed to have no trouble.
